I Wish I Were A Kid Again

I Wish I Were A Kid Again

A very special time
full of joy and wonder
imaginations on fire
as the little ones ponder.

Christmas Eve under covers
dreams cradled in hand
each child is now off
to fantasy land.
A world so real and so full of love
as they wait for that sleigh
landing above.

Christmas Morn faces glowing 
like bright lights on the tree
one by one presents opened
as they smile with glee.

They can make wooded soldiers
at once come alive
and see Frosty smile
when passing him by.

For them Santa will deliver
at least one special thing
and oh how they love 
to hear the Carolers sing.

Still so very innocent 
filled with magic and faith
a generation that doesn’t yet know
the meaning of hate.

Yes, I wish I could say
I was one of them
oh how I wish
I was a kid again.

Hello Robynlee...

When I was real little and when my Family didn't think I would see another Christmas I was caught being awake still and I remember listening for the Bells and I was looking out the window and I heard my Dad coming up the stairs and as quick and quietly I jumped back into bed and I pretended to be asleep...

I heard Bell at the same time my Door opened...

After a couple of minutes I heard noise in the living room...

As I grew up, I knew what it was and my Family made a memory and I hope I won't forget that very Special Christmas...

Thank you for the memories!

Great write!

Thank you for sharing...

Hugs...

Wonderful symbiosis to phrases in assessment of lifes ever compelling structure interwoven throughout this. You bring dynamic interchanges to the front showing how convoluted constraints hamper expression with passing of time.
Thanks for sharing.
