When childhood says goodbye …
There are days,
when I want to return,
to the yesterdays,
when Ferris wheels were fun,
when carousel horses,
seemed so real
and fairytales took me to another world.
Days when I want to be a child again,
to live life so simple and carefree,
even after childhood has said goodbye
Can we have it all?
Even when we are grown,
as long as we keep,
the child inside of our soul.
Take a look really deep,
into the ripples of the mirror,
somewhere inside –
there’s the child you left behind.
When you came to the crossroads
and said goodbye to childhood.
Take a look back to yesterday
and remember to keep the dreams real,
never give up on what you seek,
treasure all that you have.
Gazing into the mirror,
don’t look into the eyes of the face you see,
look deeper and beyond,
into the looking glass,
there you’ll see the child in you,
waving and eager to say hi.
Take bubbles and blow them in the summer wind,
run barefoot along the seashore,
take a colorful balloon,
let it drift up high
and always remember to dance in the summer rain.
Keep your memories all shiny and new,
never forget the childish fun and laughter,
they are what makes this life so precious,
they are what can get us through our days,
so always take your childhood memories with you,
wherever you go
and always, always remain young at heart.
