I wish I was back,
In a past time.
When things were simpler,
When I was a child;
Protected by my parents love,
Unaffected by anything.

Maybe those moments
In the school playground;
Skipping and running
Chasing in a game.
Not worrying
About how the time
Is slipping
Like sand in an hourglass.

Maybe the moment
On the edge of a pond,
Admiring the appearance
Of a duck
Gliding the surface
Of the water
Unknowing of how
That moment would finish.

Maybe the moment
High in a tree,
Scratches all over
My knees
But I don’t care because
I made it up.
And I felt strong.
But now I feel weak.
And time is
Running smaller.
