Where has all the magic gone?
Hearts that shatter and fall.
When the future disappears in a shroud of smoke
Lost to eyes that once saw it so clearly.
Where has all the wonder gone?
Souls that fade away.
Life that meanders and laughs
At the sad little twist it has.
I sat upon the mountain,
Breathless from the climb
And laughed at the wonder of the world
Now I sit amongst the many masses
Breathless from the tears
As I lament the loss of my magic.
When did my heart forget to fly?
Wings clipped and caged like a bird
Longing for the sky
But set upon a perch that
Tethers it down and keeps it trapped.
When did I forget to turn my face into the sunlight
And simply melt away in the liquid light,
Lose my inhibition in the waves of ambient colour
And let my spirit dance upon the wind,
Laughter ringing out in joyous abandon,
At the simple beauty that is life.
But no, the forgotten magic,
Lingers as a memory to torment and tease
And dulls the day
As the lustre fails
And I wonder again,
When did I forget to simply be
