When I Was A Child

Rating: 3.8
When I was a child and
dreams had wings that
reached beyond the sun;
When I was a child and
dreams had just begun,

I dreamed of deeds,
of fair young maids and
knights up in the sky
of avenging wrongs, of
singing songs and
never asking, Why?

But with the years,
the dreams of youth
do often die
and the world knowing not
caring not their passing gives not
a single sigh - for days

When I was a child and
dreams had wings that
reached beyond the sun;
When I was a child and
dreams had just begun.

(RRuiz 1987)
