Days of Old

Days of Old

I remember days of old
when innocence still had its hold
and curiosity was still yet bold...
before I learned to fear.

and dreams were glittery and bright
that carried youth into the night
and stars were magical delight
when wonder was ever near.

and make-believe caressed my world
and fantasy around me furled
and butterflies were soft and pearled
in mists that hovered clear.

and all there was in front of me
was the moment full of childhood glee
no yesters or tomorrow sprees
the now my only sphere.

Yes, I remember days of old
when my innocence still had its hold,
my curiosity was still yet bold...
and embrace them without fear.
