Young Wisdom

giggles and laughter,
grows my daughter:
tickles and squeals,
oh how she appeals-
her inborn innocence
drowns my misgiving,
her curious nature,
sense of adventure,
sparkles and rekindle
my enthusiasm for life-
her deep blinding trust
to this world’s interest,
seizes me, in wonder
reminds me, to reconsider
my own view, cynical -
of universe in general.
there's much wisdom
i've yet to learn
from one so young.

Very well expressed, UL.

I don't have any children, but that's exactly how my nephew makes me feel whenever I'm around him.

What a great romp. I love the pace of it - in a rush just like a child!
