What if he returned?

All children except one grow up,

except the boy living in Neverland.

The boy who lives forever young

away from responsibilities,

from becoming a man.

 

What if he returned?

What if he came back to reality?

What if he came back to growing into a man?

What if he came back to responsibilities?

What if?

 

When sweeping Wendy and her brothers

to a magical place known as Neverland,

he never knew what was yet to come.

He had no idea about the adventures

or the laughs they would all share.

 

Although Wendy insisted on going home,

Peter Pan begged them to stay.

He wanted more adventures,

he desired the near-death feeling.

Most importantly he desired to have them by his side.

 

When the time came for the Darling siblings to leave,

Peter Pan stared at the family flying by his side

the smiles on their faces

as the cold wind ran through their hair.

It was at that moment he made the decision.

 

At that moment Peter Pan decided to return.

At that moment Peter Pan decided to come back to reality.

At that moment Peter Pan decided to become a man.

At that moment Peter Pan decided to have responsibilities.

It was all at that moment.
