A Dreaming Child - Poem by kanav justa

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

    ......dreaming child within us is really lost...call it a result of time or sign of development, we've lost the capacity to dream........and so have lost our innocence.....great write Kanav (Report) Reply

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