Babies

Not all babies are in diapers

Some of us oversized ones

Still secretly want to suck our thumb

When the world gets too harsh

To throw a tantrum

When things don’t go our way

And to curl up and cry

When the world gets scary and people make us sad

We feel we want to go to Mummy for a hug

When we need comfort, or that extra push

Even to stay at home,play, watch cartoons

And have an endless holiday

When life just gets too busy

And, most of all,

To recapture that innocence and that wonder and that enthusiasm for life

That confidence and openness to the world

That we may have forgotten somewhere along the way
