Treasure Island

Mihaela Pirjol

Innocence Lost

I miss the girl I used to be
I miss her smile, even her tears;
I miss the innocence she lost
Along in life, she cannot restore.

I miss her dreams and fantasies
Her expectations, even her fears;
I miss her hope for better times,
I miss all to whom she said goodbye.

    Beautiful and meaningful poem. Very true said, as the years passes by we loose the innocence of our childhood, teens to our sweet memories. Loved it. You have penned it well. (Report) Reply

    a very nice poem...
    depicting montage, sadly we all must say good bye to that girl or boy
    nostalgic lines imbued with charm and simple longing

    time is such a merciless vector.... it bulldozes everything in its path....

    There was a quote I heard in a movie that I thought of that your poem brought to mind. Which was...
    You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become a villain. Sad but true in many cases this world changes people for sure... Anyways short but sweet poem! thanks for sharing and I believe your work is really a universal sentiment we all can truly relate to. Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

    It is the real fate and no one can interfere or change the destiny. The memories of pleasant ones will last for ever in poet's mind and this is a nice poem. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
