The awe on children’s faces

At encountering new places

Wonderment pure delight

A magician gone from sight


The flight of a butterfly

As it catches their eye

Learning something new

Happiness quickly ensues


Admiration unfettered joy

At the birth of a girl or boy

The astonishment silently felt

Quickly making hearts melt


Witnessing compassion to another

Unasked, an act of humanity offered

Touching onlookers with tenderness

A helping hand given so effortless


A gesture thoughtfully proffered

To those who might suffer

The loss of a loved one dear

Their humanity oh so clear


Indeed there is much to awe

When eyes opened we saw

The possibilities before us

Life truly can be as such
