Children's Eyes
By Tom Krause

What kind of world is it my friend
        the little children see?
I wonder if they see God first
        because they just believe?

Do they see strength in caring eyes
        who watch them as they play--
or maybe love through gentle hands
        that guide them on their way?

Do you think they dream of future times
        when they would be king--
        or just enjoy their present life
        while with their friends they sing?

Do they see the acts of kindness
        done for people who are poor?
Is the very best in everyone
        what they are looking for?

And when the day is over,
        as they close their eyes to sleep,
        do they look forward to tomorrow
        with its promises to keep?

If this is what the children see,
        then it should be no surprise,
        the world would be a better place
        if we all had children's eyes.
