The Child in Us



in ante meridiem

whispers of the wind

through the eyes

 of an innocent child

where I can dream

and capture the stars

visions of my youth

chasing butterflies

effervescent love

to laugh and sing

and write my song


the child in us

it somehow keeps us wild

it somehow keeps us free
