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



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



Beautiful and fair

Running barefoot

In strawberry fields

Chasing rainbows



A soul so free

The child stopped and turned

She faces me

Beguiling eyes




What might have been

Who was this child

So fair and free?

My heart stood still

The child was me

One thought on “Yesterday’s Child

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