For A Child: When Words Don’t Come

I often wonder what goes on

In your mind

With your little “deedle, deedle”

Coming from your mouth

Eyes gazing off into space

Not really knowing what you’re thinking, feeling

Smile shines on your face when you’re happy

But words don’t come through signs or verbal language

Expressions on your face tell me how you’re feeling

But not what you’re thinking

Tears flow when you’re unhappy

I want to help you feel better

But don’t always know what’s wrong

Your simple joy, silly activity and curiosity warm my heart

As I watch you every day

But, I so desperately want to know what you think…

If only you could put into words…your thoughts
