Innocence That Knows

Angel born in human form -
oh babe, how is it you express
such heaven on this earth
by merely being...?

Sweet memories abide,
abounding in an innocence
that knew the truth of vibrant youth
without a thought of what society
might think it ought to be.

Here, beyond the days of our demise,
when spirit, wise in ways
that reach and touch eternity
brings memories that most would
rather leave within a past
not yet dissolved;
and it is here, that their resolve
begins to shatter.

For the power of will is a limited thing,
while all that joy is meant to bring
still lies within a heart of innocence;
for an angel born of human form
cannot release its love in increments.

Itís all or nothing now
as we find a way to come to grips
with a new era of an innocence
that knows the very worth
of Love itself . . .
