how?

How do you look into the questioning big, brown eyes and explain?

How do you take the small hand in yours and keep from sobbing?

How do you say it without fear gripping their little heart …

… when life goes very wrong?

You just say it as simply as possible.

And their child-like answer will surprise you …

… for they accept what is difficult,

better than we do.
