Children

When I was a child
The moon was white
It was beautiful in my sight
Everything was bright
So full of light.

When i was a child
i knew nothing of fear
My mind was clear
Dark thoughts were rare
And i had so much time to spare.

When I was a child
Daddy used to take me to school
Woke up early and bathe me like in a pool
There was nothing like shame
It was just not part of my frame.

When I was a child
The world was free
Nothing to set your heart on a spree
Everyone did love
As pure as a dove.

When I was a child
Innocence was a gift
Laughter was a bliss
Joy was never a miss
Smiles and colour, you were blessed.

When I was a child
Fresh was the air
The world was fair
The flowers were in full bloom
There was not a sight of gloom.

When I was a child
Scars of death, pain, grief and sorrow
Were stories i heard on the morrow
Man was gay
No showers left for May.

When I was a child
I never once stopped
To wonder about the end
Reality is now a new friend
All those wonders have come to an end.
