Like Water

 

Children are like water

They find the quickest route downhill

 

Children are like water they rain down upon you

 

Children are like water

Your hands will never be able to hold them for long

 

They drip

They drizzle

They spill over

 

They flood they leak they fall

They run

 

Children are like water

You can lead horses to them

 

Buoyant

Transparent to a point

They wear you away

Children are like water

 

You can see the shine of the moon in them

You can see your own face
