The girl that was

I see a little girl
Amidst brown sands,
With  joy and laughter
And tiny, dirty hands.

I envy that girl,
Innocent and pure.
Adorned in a pretty dress
And a smile so demure.

I wish, like her, i could
Run round red roses
And play ever so merrily,
With tiny water hoses.

I see, as she dreams,
And listen as she sighs,
As she watches fairy tales
With large hazel  eyes.

I see radiating beauty,
In that little girl i see
Where all is just right,
In a world i wish for me.

I long for her world, 
Without anguish and pain,
Without doubt or fears.
A world that is simple and plain.

I see a little girl,
A girl i long to be,
A girl i wish you would see,
A girl that long was me.

    You sound like the little boy that should be sharing this delightful time with who you write about. Such a sweet time in a child's life.
