- What Matters
Here one day, the next day - gone.
My awe of a daisy peeking out through the lawn.
My suppressed giggles and a sincere smile
Relishing the moment… it’s been awhile.
Showing love and honesty.
Not being afraid of the real me.
Looking up at the clouds, soaking in the sun.
Blowing bubbles with your friends just for fun.
Watching midnight movies and sleeping in late
Still waiting to feel the nerves of my very first date.
Writing ‘Dear Diary’ and divulging my secrets
Living with abandon, going forward - no regrets.
Content with the boredom, the purring of a cat
Eating everything in sight and never getting fat.
Having watermelon in the summer, cannonballs into the pool.
Dancing in front of the mirror and looking like a fool.
Never knowing about tomorrow or what it will bring
But enjoying life now, because today I can sing.
Worries are far and joy is near
The snap shot I’m seeing is very clear
Innocence comes but it doesn’t have to go,
My innocence is sacred, therefore I take it slow.
Look into your heart, search for your childhood.
If you haven’t lost it yet, know this you should:
Hold onto to your innocence.
