As a Child Sees – a poem written by Linda M Carleton
I asked, “Lord, what is your will for me?”
He told me, “See as a child sees.”
If I could see as a child sees,
How would the world look to me?
I look around perchance to see,
What the Lord has in mind for me.
Through the eyes of a child, I see,
Love abounds for all people around.
No boundaries set for judgment yet.
Happy with what they have
is the way to spend a day.
No need for all those material things.
As I see how a child sees,
Honesty comes naturally to me.
A child is quick with forgiveness too,
Unlike the world, who holds it over you.
As you see as a child sees,
Remember, they learn from you.
So always do as a child would do;
Hold a child’s learning as a value to you.
You shape their future;
It’s something God has entrusted to you.
Don’t let the child you see,
Be something you wouldn’t want to be.
