When we were young ...

When we were young?

But, I 'am' young.

Who is we?


you mean she?

Ah yes, the littleone and me

When we were young...

we ran thru feilds and played in the sun

we picked daisies for mommy

and on swings we swung

with our eyes closed

we saw beautiful colors thru our eyelids

and felt the warm, lulling sun upon our cheeks

When we were young....

We slept in a bed with a Raggedy Ann bedspread

and took naps in that bed
listening to Puff The Magic Dragon

When we were young....

we colored and looked at books and made puzzles

When did it happen?

When did we stop being young?

Where did the carefree, joyful spirit go?

Pssst ...

in the corner, behind the door

Pssst ...

look behind the door

and there she was ~ in a withered heap

on the floor

the young spirit had stopped

stopped being

she was no more

she tucked herself away for another time

for a time when it was safe to be young again

and there she stayed

getting smaller and smaller

till she was barely noticable

the door shut and she lived in darkness

for a




then one day, she peaked thru a crack in the door

she watched

but could stay silent no more

she opened the door a bit

the light hurt her eyes, but she stepped out anyway

on wobbly legs she emerged

she spoke

to me

her words were barely audible

i asked her to come closer

she did

i looked at this little spirit looking up at me

was this a trick? was i looking in a mirror?

i took a step forward - reached out my hand

she took hold - and thru my hand and up my arm and into my soul the little spirit came to life once more.

like a little firefly lighting up inside of me.

When we were young .....

we 'are' young


exploring and discovering our world for a second time


are young

running thru feilds searching for the answers


When we were young

Good morning ~firefly,
Thank you for sharing this morning.
I could feel the fear the too remains within me. I think it so so wonderful that you have pointed out so well that we each have this wonderful child within that keeps us young....and playful...if we have the courage to face each day, and know we are not alone. Thanks for being here.

Makes me think of when I was being taken care of, when there were no worries other than if I could have Captin Crunch for breakfast. Such a wonderful feeling, having no worries...
