I morn a child today.
Remembrances of Easter eggs and candy corn
Run through my mind making my heart forlorn.
Feeling the breeze during a drive to the beach
Are capped by memories being attentive to teach.
Riding log flumes through a misty spray
Are highlights for many a vacation day.
Driving to the movies for popcorn treats,
Coming home to sing of cartoon song feats.
Cuddling up with mom with a runny nose,
And being sung into a drowsy doze.
Going on a treasure hunt to find treasure with dad,
Tracking mud to show off, making mom mad.
I morn a childhood today.
