there was a time


there was a time when i thought the tooth fairy was real and i could catch him

there was a time when i thought i could run barefoot for the rest of my life

there was a time when a blue popsicle made my world ok

there was a time when i thought i would live by an eastern shore

there was a time when sunsets were prettier than sunrises

there was a time when blowing every dandelion seed meant my wishes would come true

there was a time when i thought i would live happily ever after

there was that time

I take my grandchildren to the park regularly and watch them play. When I was a kid, we practically lived at our favorite park. Anyway, I envy the ease at which they walk up to total strangers (other children) strike up a conversation and start playing. No questions, no apprehensions, no reservations...nothing. I can't remember when I lost that.
