When Children Weep

When children weep, or babies cry.
Do we have the sense, to question why?
Why their minds so young and fresh,
Can work themselves into such a mess?
Or do we wade in, 'cus we know best?
'Go clean your room' 'Fix this mess'
What would happen if we did,
Remember back when we were kids.
When some small thing, would seem too much.
When our favourite teddy we would clutch.
When children weep, or babies cry.
Do we have the sense, to question why?
