Shape Shifting

We ran and jumped
And bounded
Thought that we could fly
Above the clouds
You and I
Pulling shapes
And cutting capers
Wild and wilder
Our feet barely touching the ground
We whirled
At speeds to take your breath away
Through the night
Till break of day
After day after day

Where now those days of splendour
Where now those crazy
Shape shifters
Our bodies turned to husks
Devoid of grace
Barely moving
We shuffle holding on
Not in the passion of our former selves
But fearing
If we let go
We fall and fall and fall
