Today I am a child
All blue and
Melting into the pavement
It is round and yellow and left me
To join his friend in the corner of the sky.
For now I cannot imagine ever going on
Without my balloon of happiness
Entwined between my fingers
But happiness isn't a balloon
Happiness is finding the wings to join it
And never looking back.
