IF THERE WEREN'T ANY CHILDREN...

If there weren't any children
I would not love life so
I wouldn't have so much hope
Nor would I have so much love in my heart
I would not be hardened against pain so.
Nor would I write these poems...

If there weren't any children
Mothers would not be so beautiful...
