Lost World

Growing up as a little girl,
Innocent and bright -
I couldn´t wait to be grown-up
(unfathomable delight!)
In teenage years, I dreamed of ´Love´;
(Oh, to give my heart away!)
I never knew with pain it came,
and tears on break-up day.

As I look back on child-beliefs,
I wonder, (if I´d known...)
Would I eér have let my heart roam free?
Would 'First Love' 'er have grown?
If, as kids, we'd knew that our dreams were born
in a world now forever lost,
would anyone want to grow on up,
knowing first the cost?

I have searched my soul to ask myself
what my honest answer would be....
I think it's 'Yes', 'cause though love hurts -
It also sets us free!
