What Are You?

What are you?
Tender thing, of smiles
And salty tears
And years

What are you?
Wink of wonder
Wild, intense
Then disappears

What are you?
Vale of wishing
While we touch,
Taste, then let go

What are you?
Ever hurried
Yet in childhood

What are you?
Merry moment filled
With living’s
Little strife

What are you?
Ah, yes, yes, methinks
You are that thing
Called life
