The Smile of a Young Child


The smile of a young child,
So sweet and so fey;
Conveys hope and innocence;
The joy of summer's day.

It illuminates dark times;
Shines a light in our lives.
Makes sad people happy;
And allows good things to thrive.

It causes mountains to rise;
All cyclones to cease.
Brings nations to parley;
Ends war and brings peace.

It can do all this and more,
It is pure, undefiled;
For the power of hope;
Is in the smile of a young child.

Comment Smile of a child fills happiness in life of every couple.Our life is incomplete
without a child.It is a boon of God to us.Children are very innocent & pure
hearted.Parents shape them by "sanskars" and qualities.Education plays an
important role in making their life.But the most effective role is of parents.
Smile of child enriches our life too much.You have depicted here about the
smile of a child very well which he or she appears with every step of our life to glad.Thank you very much for describing nice lines on smaling face and providing gladness to parents as well as other people also.Again a lot of

Comment Good one!

May I add:

In it you lose yourself
Forget all the selfish self
Break open the steely shell
Fly off into the boundless
