Sometimes the rain pours down;

Sometimes we cannot help

but wear on our face a frown.




So, we must learn to turn on the light;374692_10150480041891807_1245262026_n

Have fun splashing in the puddles;

Stand on our heads to turn the frown up-side-down

whenever we become befuddled.

There are times when Dads aren’t there;

There are times when we just have to tickle ourselves,

to get rid of our own despair.



So, forgive the adults for forgetting,971921_10151690537676807_772204616_n

that kids have needs of their own,

and help them by sharing the laughter

of a child who is not yet grown.
