Yesterday’s Child

Yesterday’s Child

Yesterday’s Child

White cloud

A veil concealed

Moved gently over time

An image

Moving, running,

Laughing, playing

Joyous, carefree

Innocence

Pure

Dreams of tomorrow

Happily ever after

A fairytale

No pain or sorrow,

She twirls

And dances to songs of the wind

A ballet

To Earth’s rhythm

Perfumed breezes

Plucking ribbons

Red ribbons from hair

Delightful

Charming

Beautiful and fair

Running barefoot

In strawberry fields

Chasing rainbows

Butterflies

Exhilarated

A soul so free

The child stopped and turned

She faces me

Beguiling eyes

Searching

Watching

Seeing

What might have been

Who was this child

So fair and free?

My heart stood still

The child was me

One response to “Yesterday’s Child”

  1. So beautiful and full of the passion and love of life children have that we gradually seem to lose. I really enjoyed this post.
