As I sit and watch the children swing

It takes me back to the days of my childhood

Of playing hide n seek

Making mud pies

Of playing in the creek water

knee deep

Of catching fire flies and toads

Of carless days doing nothing at all

Being a child with no worries

To see the young ones now

With their cell phones

modern math and dating games

no yes sir or thank you

We had the childhood they have none

Yet we wonder what goes wrong

Growing up too fast

Not enjoying the days

make a difference

I do believe

It is a pity some will never know

The laughter of their own childhood
