That's when I remembered

I strolled along-side the seashore
and listened for the whisper of the wind.
I shouted a question to the sea
and watched the waves roll by.
I was willing to listen to the world
but it had nothing to say.

That's when I remembered the days, not so long ago,
when I was still a child.
I didn't have any problems...then.
They always had an answer...then.
But now they seem to forget
that I still want to know
why this world exists, and why the flowers grow!
