The wonder years

Whatever happened

To the wonder years?

Of innocence?

Of young love?

Of things to cherish?

They slowly slipped away

Before my very eyes

I relished each new dream

As an old one died

There had been

So much to learn

In those tender years

Little did I know then

That they would be

So much more

Childhood friends

Young shy and secret love

And the loss of value

From my innocence

When suddenly

It was taken from me

What happened

To those wonder years?

Those I still treasured

From my yesterdays

Once the product

Of many pointless tears

Though the time has gone

The memory will still remain

Because it is the shadow

Of who I used to be

And want to be again
