Beyond The Curtain

I stand at the window,
A curtain between me and the world.

Who am I?
A little girl.

The world is so big,
Yet, I am so small.
Will I ever be able to see it all?

I open the curtain
Just a bit
I see my world,
A little of it.

As the warm sun
Hits my face,
I cannot help
But smile.

Who am I?
A child.

This window frames my world.
I am just a little girl.

Beyond this window,
I have not traveled far.


There are other places,
I know that there are.

Out of this window,
I can only look,
But the world comes into view
When I open a book.
