Favorite Quote:
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, and therefore is winged cupid painted blind." William Shakespeare.


I remember the day
Childhood came
Singing songs of life
The greatest kind of all

It brought play dough
Coloring books
It even brought my favorite dolls
And a brand new smile

It came on wings
Of every color
Rose with the wind
As it flew

Sent from God
My childhood
A gift I never
Thought would die

But then one day
Its wings were torn
And childhood
Could fly no more

I sat and wept
For what was lost
And said hello
To a new life

Adulthood came
On bigger wings
Carrying more
Than I could handle

And so this lesson
Stays with me still
When childhood comes
Don't let it pass you by
