In my Holden Caufield-esque way, I still like innocence, and virtue, and sweetness.
Snails and pails and ponytails
Holding hands upon the trails
A train chugs slowly down the rails
In thoughts of you, love never fails

Beauty lies within your soul
And Heaven is to where we stole
I gazed at stars within your eyes
That shamed the gorgeous, midnight skies

While all about the fuss went on
The crowds, the fight, the angry dawn
But as the world fell to the ground
Your angel voice, the only sound

I wish my life upon a star
Catch lightning bugs within a jar
Tug the hair that's held with braids
And pray your virtue never fades

For as I look at you today
My youthful heart will ever stay
In twinkling lights of little stars
A nursery rhyme that's only ours.
