In my heart I am forever young.... Like springtime,
rose buds, chirping birds, green grass, caterpillars, Butterflies, tadpoles and bullfrogs, truly born again....
my heart, I run through daisy filled fields barefoot, falling down, rolling around in their sweet fragrance...
I go to
every playground and slide down every slide, swinging
On every swing, and swishing around on the merry-go-rounds..
my heart, I'm running down the beach, Feeling the wet sand squishing up between my toes, ahhh...!!
Building sand castles,
and listening for the sound of the ocean
In every seashell I find.... and giggling out loud with glee
When perhaps I
happen upon a starfish or hermit crab....
In my heart, I will be forever young, seeing all things fresh and new, And
never taking for granted all the glory and majesty
That God has bestowed upon me.
