Once a Child
I was once a child
In my hopes and dreams
thinking not of tomorrow
feeling not the past
ignoring but today
I was once a child
playing gladly with my heart
knew too little of the game
forgot most of the options
remembered but the pain
I was oncea child
who lived in this humble earth
knew not the circumstances
understood less of the results
accepted but most of the sacrifice
I was once a child
naive of all the things
acquainted not with problems
equated not the solutions
estimated but the gain
I was once a child
maturing everyday
knowing things little by little
thinking more and more
feeling yet less
I was once a child
at least i thought i was
hoped i remained the same
wished i could still be again
how good it felt i was once a child.
