I watched them at the picnic table

With crayons in their hands.

And I wondered at the purest love

God had given to this man.

He never seems to let me go

When the world is tumbling down.

No, He gives me little scenes like this

To remind me where happiness is found.

Too often we are caught in webs

That we allow to tax our lives.

Instead of concentrating on being

Good parents, husbands and, wives.

My self-made preoccupation makes it difficult to see,

But then I watch those little faces

And, my worries are set free.
