Innocence

The innocence is gone-
It has fled from them
And me.
It has vanished,
Never to return.
In this lifetime

Oh, to have such innocence again.
To be able to have the heart to love
Peanut butter and milkshakes
Puppy dogs and training wheels.

It is gone from us,
Those who have it, cherish it,
It goes quickly and quietly
And most never know that it is gone,
Until it's too late.
