Time became tangled
as she ran into my arms
The years between us melted
in the humid summer’s balm
Her smile was the weapon
that brought on time’s retreat
Her laughter filled my spirit
as time’s reversal was complete
No longer did I feel
the decades long since gone
instead I found the child within
as I sang her simple song
The magic of a child at play
is the youthful fountain sought
To join them in their time of play
is how the aging fight is fought
So bend your knees and smile
and join a child in their game
Drink the elixir of a child’s love
and you will never be the same
