Afternoon of a fawn

Something about the innocence of a fawn 
Is irresistible:
 The patience with which they watch 
For their mother’s return makes us ache 
For that time in our own lives, 
Before the pain and betrayals 
 Made us lose our trust in goodness. 
It’s a bit like watching a wedding: 
So much love and hope on display, 
Yet our tears fall at the thought 
Of both the joy and the struggles 
That lie ahead…
