Twice a Child

‘Counting only the days
Never thinking of the weeks.
Jumping ditches and climbing trees
Drinking water from a spigot
Making tents under the kitchen table.
Hanging out with friends
Forgetting the day has to end.
Never wearing fancy clothes
No need for the latest trend.
Never thinking of money
Never dreaming of getting rich.
Gazing at the ever changing sky
Seeing things in clouds going by.
Eyes wide open everyday
Sparking a mind full of wonder
That made my creative side today.
These are the things
My inner child has missed.’
