I DREAMED I WAS A CHILD

             "I DREAMED I WAS A CHILD"

 There was a place, there was a child, was It real, 
 Why was he crying,

 A street, a neighborhood, a school where laughter lived,
 clowns on a wall.

 Duck, duck goose and a circle of friends,' round and 
 Round, They ran,

 A boy named Grover, swing sets and a dream, I walk 
 There it seems.

 A small boy, lonely In his thoughts, a dreamer of things 
 Not to be thought,

 Monsters under the bed, who peeks In his window above 
 His frightened head.

 I dreamed I was a child but who Is It to be, a fathers'
 Son from yesterday,

 A child trapped In a place that does not let go, cartoons 
 And sounds of planes.

 Reality was but a moment, childhood Innocence and 
 Magic slips away,

 Where were you little girl when my October drifted 
 Into eternity.

 Imagination and Ice cream trucks playing musical tunes 
 For a dime,

 Warm Summer days lost In a mans' child dreaming eyes.


 It rests In cobwebs, It quietly waits for my return,

 A place hidden from my mind, It watches, It knows what
 I have seen.                  Keith Garrett
