Thank you! :

Is it okay
To wander so far away
That they don't catch you?
And it's impossible to break you?
Because you're in so deep
And all these secrets are yours to keep
Because childhood is long gone
And that's where we all came from
And it's these precious moments
Captured in form of these books and kept as my monuments
That I don't wish to let go
No, not today, not tomorrow
I'm moving on in life
But without these memories I couldn't survive

The little girl in me
Still dares to dream
To conquer these Elves one day
And the Fairies would watch in dismay
The Lands would await her arrival
And Naughty Amelia Jane
Would yet again
Stand there in denial.
The Enchanted Wood
Would ask me to re-live my childhood
And with Pip I would share
The Wishing Chair
And visit the Land of Pixies
And delightful would be our screams
Because now childhood is running in their bloodstream..

    Idiot. I read them when I was young. God. What I meant was, I can still read them and not think that they're only for kids.
