What is Childhood?

What is Childhood?

It’s laughter and tears.

It’s toys on the floor and unmade beds.

It’s kisses for boo-boos and “All better!”

It’s running in the rain and jumping in puddles.

It’s dirt under fingernails. It’s mud pies and tree forts.

It’s playing house. It’s dress up.

It’s bubble baths and bedtime stories.

It’s picking dandelions for mama.

It’s piggy back rides with daddy.

It’s holding hands. It’s high fives. It’s hugs.

It’s innocence. It’s carefree. It’s happiness.

It’s endless love.

It’s fleeting.
