A Small Child


Sharing with you a poem I’ve liked since I was in fourth grade!
PS: Please don’t mention it to my brother that I got this from one of his old love letters! :p

A small child looked at the star and began to weep
The star said: “Child, why are you weeping?”
And the child said, “You are so far away, I will never be able to touch you.”
And the star answered: “Child if I were not already in your heart, you will not able to see me.”
