End of Innocence

There is behind me a time for fantasy.

A time when dream and reality were one in the same.

A time where I could touch the stars with a wish,

Or hold the sun in the palm of my hand.

There is behind me a time where eternity stretched out before me.

Forever, a place to reach rather than an impossibility.

A time where hope embraced me.

A time where fear could be swept away with a kiss,

Or with a soft, encouraging word.

There is behind me a time where dreams were wings that carried me on clouds

To castles and caves and galaxies far, far, away.

There is behind me a time…

A time that I will never see again.
