I'll Have To Accept
I wish stars had five points
Like I used to believe they did
It would be fun to believe again
All the things I did as a kid.
Losing a baby tooth made me happy
I knew the tooth fairy would come
And leave me some Silver coins
Possibly_ some sticks of juicy gum..
As time goes by youth magic dies
Like all those things I thought were true
The magic is for my children_ not for me_
I'll have to accept what I can't undo.
