A Childís Song
- A Childís Song -
A Song about Innocence
Playing on the porch, not a care in the world,
A child knows so little of the pains we endure.
Yet their hearts are open, and they understand!
Itís sad those years donít last; they run like sand.
Sand in the glass, and time flying by too quickÖ
I want to slow it down, and make the sand stick.
Iíve lost too much, and Iíve cried far too long,
Yet once I was a child, and I sang a childís song.
Rainbows and day glows, and nursery tales,
Fighting with pirates on a ship that always sails.
These are the times that we donít want to lose,
Because once they are gone, we cannot choose.
Dancing in the grass, seeing castles in the clouds,
A child doesnít care about all the bustling crowds.
Yet their minds are open, and they learn in timeÖ
Itís sad we canít keep them innocent with a rhyme.
Rhymes in the wind, and the wind blowing fierceÖ
I wish the wind could take us back to simpler years.
Iíve become so lost, as the wind blew me along,
But within my heart, Iím still singing a childís song.
Rainbows and cartoon shows; places to see,
Exploring the world, and sharing good company.
These are the times that we donít want to pass,
Because they are precious, we want them to last.
Wishing on a star, seeing all the universe above,
A child flies there with a spirit as pure as a dove.
Yet their imagination is open, and they fill it all up!
Itís sad if we forget tasting our first ice cream cup.
Memories fade so fast, and new memories ariseÖ
I want to hold on to them all; savor each surprise.
Iíve learned so much; I know right from wrong,
Though I can still go back and sing a childís song.
Rainbows and hair bows, and rock and roll,
Hanging out Ďtill midnight, dancing out of control.
These are the times that we donít want to end,
Because hearts break so easy: so hard to mend.
