Humaling

“He was fond of

the world and all

its pleasantries.

With innocence not lost,

play made him joyous and

laughter filled him with comfort.

Naivety in his eyes,

I could see sparkles of

wonder and excitement,

no care in the world;

we were both smiling.

He was happy and

I was endeared by the

bittersweet memories

of my childhood.

But how quickly time goes by;

I was innocent and naive

once, and now

I’m too old to remember

the world without

sadness,

fear,

suffering.

I never wanted to

grow up.”
