of childhood dreams and loves lost

I used to love you from the deepest core of my being
That sense of wonder at your very existence
The childlike awe at the sound of your laughter
But it breaks my heart to realize I'm losing it...

I used to love you from my waking hours 'til dark and in my dreams
That place where fairies, unicorns and Santa Claus were real
The innocence of my love in loving you completely
But it saddens my heart, my Love's disappearing...

How could this be, what do I do?
I can't let go, I only know how to love you
Can shattered dreams be put together?
Would wounded hearts be mended in time?

How far away is the place I dreamed?
I need to go back to love like never before
Can my love be the beacon that beckons me on?
How do I get there, would you show me the way?

I can feel you my dear. Dig a little deeper. You will find the missing love. Big hug

This is sad and beautiful.

@sweet mama africa- Glad I didn't dig too deep. Some relationships are best left alone :-) so better ones can form

@Etoile Oye- Very sad indeed but lie goes on, abi?
