We celebrate together in a charm
A love in wonder spoken free
With added tease in morning alarm
The children horde their candy
Such little cause to worry of their greed
Youthful ambition, the search
The plastic spheres is only their need
While the world arrives in church.
Inside the facade of precious childhood
We do protect, we wish only love
A world around crumbles a neighborhood
In the cooing mist of lovely dove.
A pain exists that frightens innocence
On Easter day we pray that life has chance
