As a child I saw fairies and my kids too. Saddest poem i have written now they are gone.
|Today I visited my garden,
It's a place where memories once lived.
Where love once ruled over sadness,
And all those who came believed.
That in quiet and secluded corners,
There lived mysterious little beings.
Some said they had to be fairies,
With their own eyes they had seen.
That took me back to my own childhood,
When I had seen them too.
But today whilst I sat and listened,
If those fairies were still around.
For those who once believed,
Have forgotten this garden of love.
And that fairies only live,
In gardens where love is found.
A place where sadness has taken over,
Where love doesn't live any more.
I think that they must have departed,
So I sit here on my own.
And wonder if love will ever return,
To a garden that was once overflowing.
With love and joy and wonder,
The place they once called home.
