A giggle, a laughter…
Beautiful sounds of no worries of happily ever after.
Such innocence only last for a glimpse
Then it won’t be seen since…
The light in a child’s eyes is such a sight often bringing pure delight.
And yet it is such a fragile thing.
It can dim over time.
Or be snuffed out like a candle in the night.
Regardless how much you hold on tight.
It can be gone by mornings first light.
