Hindsight

I'm trying to find my days gone by
My sunsets and my trees
I'm trying to find my happy days
When my soul was light and free

I'm searching for my fairy tale
My once upon a time
I'm searching for that long ago
When joy and youth were mine

I'm following my trail of tears
To dances in the rain
To hills of hope and tenderness
Of bitterness and pain

I'm opening every sealed- up door
To see what I might find
And oh, the view revealed to me
The springtime of my mind

And once again I'll run and laugh
In my own Elysian field
To memories so close and dear
I gratefully will yield
