I was young and innocent once,
Baby face with doe eyes,
Freckled and scrawny,
Innocent for my 12 years.

Reading Grimm's Fairy Tales,
Wondering why girls giggle,
Loving my chihuahua dog,
It was a time of light.

Comic books and summer days,
Laying in fields of hay,
Endlessly chasing draggonflies,
Counting boxcars in trains.

All these things so long ago,
And many, many more,
Remind me over and over,
I was young and innocent once.

(more...)

I looked through eyes of wonder,
At my world of childish things,
My toys, my kite, my GI Joe,
All things that mattered to me.

Time ticked onward,
Carrying me towards a time and place,
When I would no longer feel
Young or innocent any more,
I would feel old, very old,
And oh, so very changed.

These are beautiful expressions of innocence and the loss of it. You may no longer be innocent, but you are a good and decent person with a good deal of talent. Your words were healing for me.
