"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
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.
