Back Again Not

Simple ways, trouble-free times
unadorned as the black/white mime
beckoning ways, calling me back
my troubles yet to be unpacked.

Comforting life, time without care
dreaming me hither, do I dare
look around at that time, and wish to be
a little one, a child of three?

At that age, just surviving
loving, laughing, simply thriving
on all of nature’s whimsical ways
old seasoned age still at bay.

A blonde-haired innocent
with fresh eyes of green
everything to be spent
everything to be seen.

No, I guess I’d much rather be
here when my grandchild turns just three
and watch with him all the delights
and imagine again all the sights

that he sees now, for the first time
like an unadorned black/white mime
I’ll help, be there, his guiding light,
and tuck him in, safe at night.

Looking back is good.. but the future looks better.

I liked your poem.

Looking back can be a good thing, but seeing the past as it is created through the eyes of a child sounds a lot better. Nice thought and a nice poem Sunshine.

I can really relate to this. I love seeing the world thru my granddaughter's eyes. What a refreshing way to play
