When I Was A Child - Poem by nicola burkett

When i was a child, i thought they could do no wrong
When i was a child, everyone seemed to get along
When i was a child we were always together
When i was a child, i thought it would last forever
When i was a child, playing with my cousins was always fun
When i was a child, my face always brightend by the beautiful sun
When i was a child, i was young and free
When i was a child, no pain or worries i could see
When i was a child, i learned from my mistakes
Now i am an adult, now my heart breaks
