In the roses
of the lips of children,
in the tiny dimple
of their cheeks
is the blessing of
their safety.

No tears of sorrow
no dreams, nor thoughts
of illness or wrong doing
should burden
the journey through adulthood,
when through will or misfortune
make the fresh path blurred

Through time one learns
to kiss the sweetness
of life itself and rest
all that is unnerving.
and turn unblinkingly
to the vast ocean
of life.
