"I am Happy to The Point of Fear" -Ralph Waldo Emmerson

Spinning with my arms out beside me,
playing hide and seek, come and find me,

Rolling down a hill, leaves in my hair,
Playing with a friend who really isn't there,

Laughing so hard I started crying,
Telling so much truth, i thought i must be lying,

Eyes so bright they shined like stars,
The first time I got across the monkey bars

Running with scissors to get my thrill,
Drinking from the hose to get my fill.

Eyes stayed closed to get a better look,
I played so hard that my muscles shook.

I would not walk, I skipped so high,
Because i felt like I could fly,

I ran towards everything I saw,
Every emotion was so raw,

I will believe in this if I can,
I want it back the way it began,

The heart of a child who knows no lies,
Back when I had that sparkle in my eyes.

Come back to me my childhood lover,
Happiness, where have you taken cover?
