To be young again
I dream sometimes of being there
Dancing in the rain
Never having to cut my hair.

Running after the ice cream man
Screaming for him to stop
I ran and ran and ran
The first ice cream of summer, you could not top

Riding my bicycle
Till I was breathless and faint
Then playing on my brothers tricycle
When I was caught, acting like a saint

No school, no job,
No cares no care
Just eating a corn cob
Bought at the state fair

Everything new, everything fun
No bills, no boss, no bed time
Nothing is ever in a hurry to be done
If I do something wrong, it is no big crime


To be young again would be great
But, there would be one drawback
High school, college and that very first date
Due to these, I will never go back

I have my life
I have my profession
I love my wife
And I am perfectly happy with my meditation

Of the time I had
And the friends, family, and fun
Of the time I spent with my dad
When we sat fishing in the sun

Thanks for the memory trip. Yah, I could have gone for more too, but I'm not sure how.

I had a great childhood. Hell, I even liked highschool and college. First dates... got some wonderful memories there too. Would love to do it all over again, but I'll just have to be content with getting older and thank God that I've got kids to help me relive those earlie carless times. Thanks again.
