such a thing about being a child

is that you’re full of innocence

no one will ever measure or frown

at your incompetence

the world to you is grand

full of majestic treasures

everyday is just a way

for you to start an adventure

you get to play and bask under the sun all day

such a glorious thing

the happiness of learning to ride a bike

what immeasurable joy it brings

oh a child, to be a child

not everyone knows it’s a gift

the grown up world they all long for

where they mourn and slowly drift

such a thing about being a child

such a thing indeed
