I used to hear the fairies wings fly through my backyard but now the grass is silent as still
as a tree.
I used to see the dragon hiding in the tree, playfully nipping me as I climbed, but now the
dragon has left me and I sit there all alone.
I used to dance with the elves underneath the bright moonlight, our joyful laughter
echoing all night long. But now the elves are hiding, though all night I search for them.
I used to run with unicorns, they hid in the woods nearby. We’d go on grand adventures
and journey cross the sea. But now when I cry for them to come, they just run farther
I used to sing with the nymphs and play on their harps. Doing each other’s hair we let the
day passed by. But now when I come to our favorite spot, there is only grass and flowers.
I used to fly across the sky, soaring like a phoenix; traveling to parts unknown, untouched
by human feet. But now my wings are clipped, my feet grounded to the earth.
I used to go to my kingdom, hiding behind the shed. Ruling the people gracefully and
riding my horse all day long. But now when I go to visit, I cannot find the door.
I used to be free to see mysteries untold but now I’m trapped in never-ending darkness,
my wonder nearly gone.
