Magic Carpet Ride- Visions Of Childhood

I want to close my eyes and fantasize
   and take a magic carpet ride
through all the white, fluffy cotton candy clouds I'll fly 
   until I spy the trees, the flowers and land 
and listen to the ocean's rippling waves
while my happy toes wriggle in its golden sands...
  on my magic carpet- soaring high up in the sky

Let the child in me come out to play
   in that nudging bud of youth that still remains 
Etch its frolic deep within my heart
   so I will always remember
the blushing rose petals that fall in May

I always want to remember...
   the first ray of sunshine that starts my day
like precious jewels of gold
   gleaming through windows in Heaven
as it weaves hopes and dreams in my childlike play 

Let we walk with wonder through mystical forests
peek through enchanted cottages along the way
  Oh Mother Earth restore my memories
of your magical sacred ways 
  that weaved their delicate threads
throughout the gossamer fabric of my reveries 
  as I re-write my stories in my grown up days

   Bring back to me your many ways
Let me see all the colors of your rainbows
   Watch the clouds make playful images in the sky
as I tumble and roll down grassy hills
    I'll pretend I have mighty eagles wings to fly
then sleep soundly under the stars at night
    giggling peacefully in my dreams
as I skim the tree tops and float upon a river blue and wide...
    on my wonderful magic carpet ride

    Sometimes I wonder if childhood was actually ever as pleasant as it seems in memory? Light & Love

    Well I know mine wasn't so I have to pretend by writing happier stories. Thank you for reading Debbie. I wish mine had been as happy as this seems
