I Dream of A Child

Updated on June 3, 2012


Top on the roof, smoking a light

I dream of a child, playing in sunlight

He has no worries, he has no fear

He runs and laughs, he has no fear

He sees the moon, he tries to catch

He sleeps with a smile, no smile could match

It brings in me an emotion so mild

When every night, I dream of a child




He dances in the rain

Feels every drop on his chest

Free-lances in the storm

Like a cub, in the wild forest

He makes boats of paper

Runs along them, with no reason

There’s only innocence about him, the boats’ sole maker

It brings me the joy, like wildness in the wild

When every night, I dream of a child




He doesn’t fight, he doesn’t envy

He only has friends

He has no enemy

He doesn’t judge, he doesn’t pry

When he is hurt, there’s his mother’s lap to cry

He doesn’t have responsibilities, he has no boss behind

He is a free soul, a wanderer of his own mind

I feel so relaxed

When every night, I dream of a child




Sometimes it seems, I dream of myself

I feel I was like him once

I feel I wish to be like himself

A free soul, a wanderer, a seeker

I try to find reasons unknown

Why that child left me all alone

But the dream never lasts long

Again I wait for the night all along

And as I delve into sleep

I find that part of my mind

Where every night, I dream of the child

      Beautifully written. If only we could all keep that child within ourselves alive, many problems would be solved. Sadly we grow up, and insist on making life complicated.

      This poem is fantastic, I still feel I am a child, and I'm turning 37 in February. Wow, your definitely a great poet, and I must follow you now, since a poem like this says it all about your skills as a writer. I can tell you write from your inner soul, and outward, and to me that's the best way to do it.

      Voted up, and shared elsewhere in this wonderland they call the web. Nice to meet ya digitally & welcome to hubpages, a writers heaven of sorts.

      Your poem called me back to those childhood days, when we used to wander without any worries. You've crafted the poem very well with good versification.

      Up and awesome!
