Life Given

Oh, to be innocent once again
those so many years back when
life was all about play
with no worries about the next day
going about life in a child's way,
with unyielding love from mom and dad
who made me happy when sad.

And while I find myself thinking more
of those days when I was about four
and all that has come to be
since then for me,
it is not about what has been…
but thanking God for the life given.
