I am The Sole Queen

I remember the days
When I was young and care free
I remember the naughty girl I used to be
The world was mine
And I was the sole queen

Running, hopping in the wind
Making faces, mocking a squirrel
Tiptoeing in my secret square
Then laughing till my jaws hurt

That swing we played on so long ago
Daring each other to the highest leap
Now it doesn’t seem the same
The swing is too old to partake in our game

Age brought wisdom
I wish it didn’t

Age brought reserve
In which I’m prisoned

Age brought knowledge
I didn’t need

Age had forced me
To cautiously tread

I wish I could rewind the years
