Musings – Lost Innocence

I see you look at me with wondrous eyes, I wonder what you see

I see joy in your eyes playing with me, I wonder what you see

I see me in your eyes, I wonder what you see

I see me through your eyes, I cry for the child I was…

Pain is what pain does

Difficult time today goes

Oh how I long for that innocence

I see in your eyes, I long to see in mine…

Once there was a child stripped of childhood

Once there was a heart stripped of love

Then there was me stripped of laughter

Today there is me, joining it together…

Pain is what pain does

Difficult time today goes

Oh how I long for innocence

I see in your eyes, I long to see in mine.

  1. OMG! I can feel the emotion behind this. So beautiful (and heart-wrenching). Every time I look at my daughter I am reminded of the innocence I once had, and this poem brings all that right to the surface. Well done. You should write song lyrics. So lovely. ๐Ÿ™‚ I sincerely hope you are doing okay, Shalini.

  2. Shalini, this is so captivating and I am totally in a blissful daze. This is like the best happening to me on a troubled day. I want to jump in joy, unmindful of the lingering cough. Because I see it from my favourite person when she sees innocence.
    I am trying poetry here. Dismiss if rubbish. But I have just read something totally bliss โค๏ธ

      1. Writing is a really great outlet but the words don’t always come.. but I’m glad that when they do, you share them with us. They’re really beautiful and I hope you have more of those days so there are less crying days!๐Ÿ’– I’m so glad we’ve found a friendship in each other through our books๐Ÿ’•
