What Youth Must Be

"I'm thinking the deepest definition of youth must be...life as yet untouched by tragedy...the loss of a great love" ...


Someone sent that to me yesterday and asked for my thoughts. I replied with "Eyes that have not seen pain and a heart that has not borne anguish. Lips that have yet to kiss a lover goodbye and arms that have yet to replace a loved one with a pillow. Mouth untouched by deep sighs of longing and a memory that does not hold dreams that were made to die."

I fear that my youth went away and left me behind... so here i stand, like Dorothy, clicking my heels for my return to a home that never was.
What are your thoughts on youth?

youth...the time to love without boundaries; the time to be without a care in the world....the time to live life on the edge.
