And, if we could retrace our steps,
To the time of naivety, innocence and awe.
laugh at the sun that caught our eyes,
sometimes creating an illusive vision of what is before us,
A mirage, a glazed encounter or something even more spectacular.

crayons and pencils,
once new, now used, broken,
scattered around us,
the colors wildly chasing dreams imagined.

If only time stood still, we would have retraced our steps, to the time of you and me, and chosen love, happiness, and peace.
In the stillness of the hour, sometimes the heart does meander.
