I wrote this little poem..
about being an innocent kid..
and the thoughts I hsd then..
thought it would fit 'here'

***

(The World thru' the eyes of a little child)

- WONDER -

"When I was a little child imagination running wild,
When all my dreams ran wild and free
The world was a different place to me

Even in the baby school, I could never obey the simple rule
of>

sitting down and being quiet,
with an eager heart and mind so bright and full of
curiosity about so many new things I could see..

I thought the flowers were little friends
who tickled a nose with funny scents.
Woven in a wreath upon my hair ,
their colors matched the ribbons I'd wear..

When Mama lay me down to sleep
I watched the shadows slowly creep up close
around my bed
Aw! you wouldn't believe the things they said
like>

Telling me... I was a fairy queen
who ruled alone in the land of dreams
And .. at birthday time when I waved my wand
A bright star fell in a land beyond
and turned into an apple tree
with silver apples JUST for me.

Through the window across the sky
I was SURE I knew the reason why

the moon and stars were playing about
I thought I had it figured out!

that the moon was really a friendly old Dad..
And the stars were
the little children he had

who danced and twirled in the Heavens all night
and slept in the clouds come morning light.

And when the sun came out to play
I viewed her too... in another way>

like some glittering crown a lady would wear
it's rays.. like strands of golden hair.

When Christmas came by every year..

I SWEAR I felt a presence near
Whether Santa Claus or an angel above?
I only know,
I felt the love of a blessed spirit..
holding me tight and kissing my cheek
all throught the night

Saying I was a sweet princess
who always wore the prettiest dress

Well,
it could have been the JESUS child ...
I often thought .. by the way He smiled.

I had a wonderful Mum and Dad..
The best you'd ever meet..
They loved me well and bought me treats
Like coloured papered toffee sweets.

Way back then when I was a child,
For a time, I had an Angel's mind
AND
I saw the world in a wondrous way..

Another time..

Another Day.."
