You miss being a child ? ...........poetry

I was thinking as I was driving the other day
so warm in the september sun
about how it used to be fun to drift in a lazy
river just for fun

Or later in the warm currents of the sea
swimming for hours with no ends
playing in the roaring surf
laughing with young friends

I wonder what has happened to me
a man now and never the time
or maybe it's just different
to play along a new line

Now I stare for hours into a crackling fire
listening to nature's sound
I guess it doesn't matter what we do
when play time comes around

Maybe it's the memories that matter
did we live while we had the chance
it's all about enjoying the life
dancing this living dance

I can stand now for long moments
watching the sun go down
Just one more day to love and live
as the world turns slowly round

My friend, it is the memories that make all the difference. Our childhood was important to us each and for me...these are always the best memories of my life, mainly because I was a stranger to most fear and took hardships as the way it must have to be. Thanks for the memories my friend. whonu

Sure the memories are important; and if we remember something we could have, should have done but didn't do, do as much of it as we can now. Good thoughts!

Greatly mentioned here. Life is full of memories going down memory lane to childhood and now is a wonderful thought.
