Dad

 

He often dreams of what he wants to be

and sleeps just to remember what itís like:

young, anxious to grow, fresh with fantasy.

He often dreams of what he wants to be.

And when he canít sleep, drinks, forgets, feels free

to hate the children, raise his hand and strike.

He often dreams of what he wants to be

and sleeps just to remember what itís like.

 

Michael T. Young
