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.


The 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 the world comes into view

When I open a book.
