My Childhood Faded Away - Poem by Philip Lore

My childhood has faded away
In those days I had no bills to pay.
I close my eyes and remember those days.

Childhood dreams filled with love,
Hide and seek, my baseball glove,
No heavy chains,
Warm summer rains.

Fiery dragons, flying high in the sky,
Pirate ships, Captain Bligh.
Munching sweet apples,
Candy peppermint,
Rosy red cheeks,

Long ago, not by chance,
Under my bed, monsters danced.
Through the years a backward glance,
Wishing I had my bell bottom pants.

Eyes so bright,
Flying a kite,
Birds singing cheeful songs.
Quiet days, star filled nights,
Winter snow, on frozen lawns.

I wish that I was back today,
But I've put that life far away,
My childhood moments that I recall,
Childhood years, were the best of all.
