Like A Child

"I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Mt 18:3)"

"
I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Mt 18:3)
Wondering eyes
look up at me
Your favorite question
was always "why".
The innocent words you speak
hit me like a hammer
when had I lost all of this,
unwavering faith
You know nothing of death
You live in a world
carefully crafted by hands
that protect you from the troubles
your world is made of love
your heart is trusting
looking at you I long
to once again be
what I had lost
As you lead me to the light
that I can no longer see
I wish I could once again be
like a child.
You may not be smarter,
but you are wiser
Your smile is full of joy
you haven't felt the sharp knife
that life can bring
you have no worries
you are free.
As I look into your eyes
I wish I knew how to be
like a child
you seem like you'll be
forever free.
Your round eyes
see through the mist
you know the path
that will lead to where we all
want to be
And for you I hope
you will never lose this
impossible as it may seem
stay like a child
never lose this hope
keep your eyes clear
there is nothing that you need to fear
Even as you learn of troubles
don't let your shield crack
there is a world
made of love
you will find the path
that leads to where you want to be.
Like a child
we are forever free.

There wasn't really any thought behind this, I just wrote it. I know it could use a lot of improvement and I would appreciate any advice, especially on how to even out the lines and separate it into stanzas. Thank you so much for reading!
