SuziCate's Musings

When and Now…

When I was a child I thought

Children danced on angels wings.

Now that I am old I know

Our lives are the wings on which angels dance.

When I was a child I dreamed

Of unicorns, mermaids, and magical things.

Now that I am old I know

Our lives are magic left to dreams and chance.

When I was a child I thought

I’d never grow gray, frail, or old.

Now that I am old I know

In my heart I shall always remain young.

When I was a child I thought

Little was true of what I was told.

Now that I am old I know

Truth is the heartbeat of the tune I’ve sung.

When I was a child I thought

I could become anyone I dreamed.

Now that I am old I know

I really just wanted to belong.

When I was a child I thought

Life was as simple as it seemed.

Now that I am old I know

In my heart of hearts I was not wrong.
