I just noticed a wrinkle in the corner of my eye and frankly I feel a bit insulted. It seems that time is using my own face to wink at me as it steals my youth. For a moment I stare regretfully at my reflection considering the reality that I'm not the same man I used to be;

But then I look past the wrinkle into the eyes...

Ah yes, there I am! The same man - no, even the same boy, who used to play for hours in the sandbox dreaming the castles I built were real. Time may alter my features but it cannot change my soul. It cannot change my soul because it comes from a place where time has never been; And someday, perhaps a day so soon I would shudder if I only knew, someday I will go back there again forever.

And the castles in the sand? They may yet prove to be real after all...
