Who am I?

who am I?
where am I?
why am I here?
when I was a child
going about my childish business
suddenly I would stop
when someone in me
asked those magic questions
the answer never came in words
it came in feelings
lots of lovely, cascading feelings
of feeling loved
feeling special
safe
for a few precious minutes
time stood still
except it didn’t
all grown up
my secret powers had slipped away
forgotten for many years
and now they return
who am I?
where am I ?
why am I here?
but the magic is gone
and
the silence is deafening
