Child Eyes

Child eyes eager filled with all things now
Never look the other way
What happens becomes eternal

Questions asking why asking when asking how
Years adjust the query
As the seeker’s eyes grow weaker

Child eyes eager
Taking captive what is here
Tendrils hope the hold is worthy

Breaking free of what seems
The only source of life
To go with what you know

Child eyes eager
Courage runs the track
Most of the way

Pale with time and
Effort weighty memories overflowing
No answers satisfy a longing

Child eyes eager
Gazing past the moment
Into the frozen past

To linger where
Ponder when
It no longer matters why
