A lost child’s game
Long ago thoughts buried
Sleepy eyed visions wished upon
Hear the bluebirds that have long since been gone
Joyous dreams dance in the night air
Granting wishes somewhere
Hear my thoughts now

At lost and found
Look around for someone
Might be lost and wants to be found
They could seek someone maybe just like me
Pretend you are finally found
By one who came around
The long lost bend

Moments in time
Colorful pictures drawn
Captures a memory today
Etched deep within ones mind everlasting
Picture come into ones own thoughts
Heart finds gentle promise
Whispers of love
