Joy and Sorrow of a Child

A child’s laughter
Is unlike any other.
Loud and harsh,
Sweet and hush

A child’s laughter
Can bring a smile,
Or gray hairs.
But always recalled
In the telling of tales.

A child’s laughter
Is their sign
Of enjoying life
For life’s sake.

But a child’s silent cry
Is something far worse.
Slumped shoulders
And bowed head,
No sound issues
But tears fall slowly.

It is not the cry of want
Or the cry of attention
But of a hurt so deep
That their soul is in pain
