In the beginning

You learned how to talk and walk

To explore and play with the world around you

And when you fell or bumped your head or scraped your knee

You cried

Quickly learned from your pain

And picked yourself back up

And kept on going

Playing

Dreaming

Playing

Getting hurt

Learning

Playing

Dreaming

Playing

Play

Play

 

That was you at your purest.

And then you started to grow up.
