Once Upon A Time When I Was Young (title graphic) Wish it was really this easy to peel back the years! :o)

Peeling back the years.




The Child Within can't help but giggle when she looks in the mirror.

In my mind the child I see
Mirror shines reflectively
Youth goes by so swift I know
Child within forever shows

I know my mirror does not lie
But in my heart I must get by
Youth in life is always there
Worn or broken I don't care

I am the same ~ I'll always be
Full of life just slow you see
Doesn't matter honestly
My spirit moves me constantly

Time it goes so swiftly by
Never waste your time or cry
Beauty there can't disappear
It's in the heart of love you wear

You look divine ~ you always do
I see that little child in you
Running down the road again
Holding hands like we did then.
~~Francine Pucillo©2001-2002~~

Ya' know, right now, right here, is a pretty nice place to be.  Guess I really wouldn't want to peel back tooooo many years :o)
