If I Could See with Baby's Eyes: A Poem

Val enjoys writing rhymed poetry with a valuable message in it.


If we experienced life through the eyes of a child, everything would be magical and extraordinary. Let our curiosity, adventure and wonder of life never end.

-- Akiane Kramarik

If I could see with tiny baby's eyes

unaware of what they are seeing

I'd let the world come to my size

just forever loving and agreeing.

If I could hear with baby's ears

cannons would play lullabies

laughter come out of tears

and truth replace all lies.

If I could touch with the baby's hands

it could be your face I would touch

with tiny heart that understands

why I'm loving you all so much.

If I could smell with baby's tiny nose

winter would have aroma of a spring

and dandelion would smell like a rose

every beggar would smell like my king.

And if I could taste with baby's rosy lips

a plain milk would be like gourmet dinner

while that gentle rocking between the sips

would make me feel like some world winner.


But for Epilog - damn it, I'm not that baby

I got my chance, they say I just cried a lot

well, as for a happy adult, I'll say a maybe

as I don't give a damn, you believe it or not.
