A Dreaming Child


if veracity stings dreams are delight,
i meet those dreams in the dawning night

where memories old, , too old too old
in a coffer stored, never were sold

in dreams I fall, in dreams I rise
in dreams like child I scream and cry

i see those things what I left behind
back in time, where hearts were kind

like a gust of wind in dreams I am wild
in sleep I am still a dreaming child

where memories old, too old too old
we had a silken skin and a heart of gold

in the dead of the night when away lies sun
i am a noble man when my eyes are shun

but things they change when I awake
those mortal dreams, like glasses break

like breeze now I blow so calm and mild
i wonder where’s that dreaming child

    Children must grow dreaming
    And the grown ups should follow suit..
    It is on the right track that you position your thoughts, Kanav. (Report) Reply
