When I Was Little
When I was little, Daddy would
Hold my hand in his big warm one
He’d tell me, “You’re my Princess!”
And together we’d have grand fun.
When I was little, Mommy would,
Sing sweet lullabies to send me to sleep
No matter how tired she was, wouldn't scold
Even if I woke her up like an alarm beep.
When I was little, everyone was good
No terrorism, No corruption, No calamities
Didn't care who ruled or lived or who died.
Everything seemed bliss, crawling on my knees.
When I was little, I would
Run about with not a single worry
Dad’s shoulders were the highest peak,
There was no rushing and no hurry.
When I was little, didn't know
What vices were, nor how to lie
I believed in all the fairy tales
And dreamt one day would fly!
When I was little, all the world
Was heaven itself! Now I cry:
Innocence, Oh childhood friend, come
Embrace me again, never to say goodbye.
I wish that it would all come back.
If only for a teeny tiny day
So we could make snow angels,
And would play and play and play!
