The Guardian of the Faerie Mound
As a child I met this strange ancient creature, one sunny spring day, in the woods. He took me to the land beyond; the land of the elves. I used to play and laugh and sing in that realm of light, magic and love.
As I grew up I stopped going there and in time forgot how to get there. I even forgot about that place entirely for years and years...
Now in my own autumn, I remember again.
As time goes by, I long more and more for that place of magic, light and lost love.
I have searched for the way back to that place countless times now, yet it keeps eluding me...
I have a feeling that, on my last day, that strange ancient creature will find me and take me back to that place of light, magic and love once again.
And I find peace and comfort in that thought.
