I was a child.
You were a child.
We were children together.
Before the world interfered.
That is ours.
That time. That innocence.
That probability of who we would become.
And the world be damned
That’s the simple truth Beth.
Yes, the world that interfered with childhood innocence be damned!
I tried to make the crying one but this came out. 😢 Don’t know how tarafaherty did it but I copy/pasted from her cause that is what I wanted to say.
Same for this face, ditto. ❤ and thank you.
Oh – the innocence. Youth holds its steady pattern until outside signals wreak havoc. We have a way, however, of tuning in – switching channels – as we age which makes us realize the innocence may have just been naivety – blissfully unaware. Old souls don’t get to play innocent for long, do they?
There was a time when we were blissfully unaware Stacey. Sadly, and horribly, it was to, to, to brief. 😦
…..and no-one can ever take that away from you, even if it’s just a memory now.
Thank you Peter. It’s what I keep safe.
Such was life when my younger brother and I were growing up. There is a line in the Johnsons song, “You are my sister” which says “Remembering Faces and worlds that no one else will ever know”. If you have a close sister I advise you to check out the song.
That line speaks to me of the worlds we created and played in that were only in our imaginations and are still there today.
Wonderful memories which continue to bind us all these years later.
I read this this morning, (as I do all your posts on FB) and have enjoyed the memories it sparked all day Colleen.
Thank you Tric. I will look it up. 🙂 And I have a sister or two….. 😉
yes that lovely sweetness
It was something I need to hold on to.
So hard to hold on to something which was taken away. . . trying to keep some happy moments from childhood is special, though. xo ❤
That first part of your comment is exactly how I feel.
Oh, so sorry I wish you had some happy memories to keep. xo
Oh I do. I truly do. But there were things that happened that changed the projectory of our lives.
I do think this is still so sad but feel you are overcoming and always creating a better place to be, on a bike, with grandies or husband.
. . . at a coffee or ice cream shop.
You know me well Robin 🙂
I will take back grandies but imagine you with nieces and nephews, Colleen. Otherwise, I do feel we know each other! ❤
And yes there is a slew of nieces and nephews as well! 😉
