Rejoice Like a Child

I saw a child, a young child,romping through the open field.
Her hair was flying wildly, her limbs moving like a graceful deer.
What put that lovely smile upon her face?
Was she feeling the joy of moving freely, unencumbered by restraints?
Feeling free, even as adults, makes our hearts expand,
rejoicing in the feeling of uninhibited movement.
How do we recapture that, returning to a child's happy place?
Unfortunately, adults are held to society's rules and expectations.
Come with me, romp with me, rejoice with me, appreciate life.
Look to the sky, soar like the birds, appreciate life's blessings.
Feel no shame in enjoying the childlike pleasure of just being you.
The wind is at our backs, the sun is shining and God is smiling down.
Let us take a moment in time to remember the feelings
of just being a child.
Soon enough we must return to our world of adulthood.
