"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, swingsets 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 Icecream trucks, playing musical 
  Tunes for a dime,

  Warm Summer days, lost In a mans' child dreaming 

  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
