What happened to the dreams I had as a child?
Dreams that were bigger than life,
That reached beyond fences and boundaries
and took me to faraway places
where there were fantasy adventures
and fairytale endings,
and I could be whoever I chose to be.
O’ when did I stop dreaming like a child?
O’ when did I lose my adventurous spirit?
As I look back at the way I once dreamed,
I long to revive what I lost.
I long to awaken the child that’s still in me.
I long to dream again like my child once did.
Do what my heart longs to do.
Be who my mind wants to be.
Yes, I can still dream if I try.
I can…..I shall…..I will.
