Watching the sun go down, his stare seemed beyond the sky,

A child so young, from this corner he saw them light up in the night,

Run with your friends as the sun rises in the early morning light.

I have seen a man on a corner since my days of chasing butterflies,

Where is it that he goes, what thoughts clutter his mind on many days.

He begins back in time when he too watched a man on a corner,

Playing many childish games, we ran until the sun set in the sky,

Today as the children play it is I who becomes a man on a corner.
