little lives

little hands
tender touch so very much
expelling mindful fear
compelling surest hope

little hearts
encompass distant stars
and misty glowing moons
and oh such mighty things

little feet
climb the tallest trees
scale mountains enough
for dark elephant herds

little faces
invent sweetest smiles
of apples and plumbs
and never forget to see

little lives
expand our furthest vision
encourage our journeys
and need our truest care

little babes
are precious precocious
creatively courageous
and they break so easily

never
ever
forget
this
