MAN ON A CORNER

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

 A child so young, from this corner he saw them 
 Light up 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.
       Keith Garrett
