I remember, upon a day,

Ceiling staring, from the bed I lay.

What’s in store for little me?

Grand plans, in stars I see.


Magic beans, or carpet ride,

Genie bottles, and rainbow sky.

What fate awaits for me?

Whose destiny will it be?


Oh what thoughts for a little boy,

Who dreams beyond a simple toy.

Who’s magic of imagination,

Is running with no Hesitation.


Out of nowhere from a mirror stand,

A grown-up boy stands at command

"Slow down my little son”,

"Learn to walk before you run”.


"Plenty of time to run a race”,

"Pace yourself with stamina and grace”.

"Enjoy the scenery, embrace the ride”,

"Resist the temptations you feel inside”.


Sitting Up for a clearly view,

Reflection shows a face I knew.

Tasseled hair and freckled smile,

"I guess I’ll stay here for a while”.

Wouldn't that be wonderful if a wiser self could caution our younger selves to slow the pace and enjoy the journey. We all wonder why we were in such a hurry to grow up. I enjoyed this Jeff. Very nicely done.
