I was a child when I entered a new country.
All through my life I have been a child at heart,
And that has saved me.
I have thawed winters,
And revived the dying.
My reign was golden.
I was nearly a lioness.
I sailed to the edge of the world,
And I have spoken with stars.
No one has felt a parting as painful as mine,
But no longing hope burned as brightly,
For the day when I would see You again.
