Where is that child
who laughed and dreamed
of fairies and elves
and things with wings?

Where is that child
whose wondrous eyes
viewed life's offerings
with glee and surprise?

That child who did
believe in dreams
of unicorns, dragons
and other such things?

who squealed and giggled
with joyous delight
at pictures of places
far from sight?

I'm here! I'm that child
still loving the art
and singing the songs
within my heart

Still happily dreaming
and loving life's music!
Still enjoying its wonder
and believing the magic!
