Time Flies

Oh, to be a child again!
Where the hardest decision was which toy to get!
Oh, to see the world through eyes of innocence!
When you looked upon the world with eyes of pure trust!
Oh, to be a princess upon Daddy’s shoulder!
When Mama held your hand, looking both ways for you!
Oh, to be a limitless dreamer!
Where no worries haunted you!
Oh, time does fly!
Why wish it away?
Oh! Dear, Child, do not wish the day away!
