Like Peter Pan I tried Not to grow, Not to leave The fun and games Forever past. But at last Life caught me up; I forgot How to laugh, How to fly, How to hold Laughter In my upcurved Hands. I found No Wendy, No Tinker Bell, Not even A Captain Hook Fixed upon My elimination. All my happy Thoughts Abandoned me, And I came To ground Ne'er to fly again. But sometimes I still look up And see the clouds And wonder, For a moment, If I will ever see Neverland again.
