When I Was Young


Tell me gentle butterfly
What was it like in days gone by?
When I was younger
I would play
And think not twice ’bout yesterday
But now I see what once had been
And long to see it once again
Those I loved
Those friends once had
The songs of birds
The tickle of the butterfly

The smell of forest
Fresh with life
The leaves applaud
The wind in passing
The day filled with fun

The cricket’s chorus
The toad’s ensemble
The night was filled with song

What’s become of  life since then?
Where did all that go?
Did I imagine all those things?

Nay, they live still
