On the loss of innocence & magic

now you are emerging
from the realm of innocence and magic
your eyes no longer see (the world)
or dream (images of heaven)

they attach themselves to the letter
and to the letter
they attach

these now create what you see
these now create your world

can you see it yet?
do you see the change of light?

as i see you start to read, 
i cannot help
but feel
at the loss of innocence and magic
the change of light in your eyes

i know there is a new world
in each letter
each book
yes, my world

yet i wish i could save (for myself,
and for you)
the magic light
of innocent imagination

but who am i fooling
this is the way of the world
