I Was

I was a curious and fun-loving child.
I believed that I would never grow up.
I had many animals around me.
I saw lots of caterpillars in the Spring but none in Winter.
I always heard Disco playing while Mommy cleaned.
I loved visiting Nana Nora, my neighbor.
I wanted to race Daddy's racecar.
I worried about Buddy, the local stray.
I dreamed of magic and flying with dragons.
I cried when I got lost in the grocery store.
I laughed when I played with my pets.
I pretended to climb mountains and swim in oceans.
I didn't know that it wouldn't last.
I tried to stay young.
I was a curious and fun-loving child.
