I have travelled around the world,
But only in one girl’s eyes.
Some say it’s true, others not,
Quite different, have I got.
Truth be told, I am lost,
But I lived another life, in her mind.
A man spared a child sadness,
And taught a lesson with it too.

Who am I?

It could be ( partial one)

the famous penny black ( postal stamp)

Which

travelled around the world, when it was in use, the girl - being a relative/ herself - Queen Victoria

Some say it’s true, others not, Quite different, have I got.

Perhaps, people argue - if it is really she!

Truth be told, I am lost,

Not sure...on this part

But I lived another life, in her mind.

As a queen, definitely she lived a different life, mentally.

A man spared a child sadness, And taught a lesson with it too.

Not sure on this part.

I don't know if I'm close or very far...

Amelia Earhart?

I have travelled around the world, But only in one girl’s eyes.

She tried to fly around the world, but only she and her co-pilot know if they did.

Some say it’s true, others not, Quite different, have I got.

It is a little bit of a mystery.

Truth be told, I am lost,

Still lost.

But I lived another life, in her mind.

Maybe she landed on some island and lived a life with the native people.

A man spared a child sadness, And taught a lesson with it too.
