I went for a walk in the park today,
So full of energy was I.
I watched the children busy at play,
They seemed to care less who passed by.
I thought as I watched them, lost in their fun,
“If only we could be so carefree!”
They’d frolic for a while and off they’d run
Wherever they chose to be.
I found myself wishing that I could return
Back in time if that possibly could be.
How nice it would be to new games learn
And from life’s burdens to be free.
After all the “what ifs” were finally passed,
I, back to reality, returned.
It was back to work, though not as fast
As to vacation I had wishfully yearned.
