Beauty in Sadness

There is something special about taking a toddler to sad event.  
Even when you are so concerned about the ruckus they are making they give you beautiful moments.  
They can look at the person you’ve come to honor, throw their arms around you and tell you 
“Night, Night.  Night, Night.” 
as if to explain it all in the most basic and wonderful of ways 
and then run off in glee filled giggles.
“…To die to sleep,
To sleep, perchance to Dream; Aye, there’s the rub,
For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause.”
– Hamlet Act 3 Scene 1
