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.
