Inspired by my beautiful young son at play…
Besotted child at play,
Where went the world
Beyond your treasures,
Totally immersed in
Joys and blissful moments,
Dreaming oh so far
Beyond this earthbound plane
Of duty, serious intent and
All manner of grown up life-things.
Magic lies within the dreamlike
Haven, cushioned from the dreary
Wheel of life, perpetuating
Killer of the dreams of childlike
Fantasy, grey suits and blacker
Dreary days beyond the time
Of childhood flown away.
Cherish every youthful whim
To play, in fun fuelled moments
Whisked away on stars of make believe
And magic fairy dust filled rainbows
Sun blazed skies
And destination moon and stars
On clouds of childlike bliss.
