Today I cannot stand the light-hearted sounds emitting from the television set,
I cannot tolerate music of any kind since it evokes memories of something taken from me,
loss overwhelms, loss of freedom, of frivolity, of an era gone and closed, never to be had again,
a turning point in our lives irrevocably closed, one our children one day may conceive to be a fairy tale from a fruitful imagination,
maybe as we look upon the fairy tales from our childhood, so magical, distant and unbelievable, who says that is not how we once were,
creatures of light, flying through the air as a breath of wind, colourful as mischievous laughter, a delight to anyone who sees you, your gift to everyone you touch, love, peace and life.
And all the while the waves keep rolling, another dusk has fallen, another day in limbo,
how long is this going to last……
