The feeling of being a little kid

having no worries

nothing you do is wrong

the fun of the toys

birthday parties

stuffed animals

how could you know that in just a few years

they would be sold, given to other people

even thrown away

But when you lose something you can also gain something

maturity, knowledge, responsibility, respect

starting to read long books

with only words and no pictures
