“When I Was A Little Boy”

When I Was A Little Boy

When I was a little boy,
I couldn’t wait to be grown up.
No one telling me what to do,
And I could drive a real truck.

I wish that I was young again,
Now that I’ve grown older.
When I still believed in fairy tails,
Before life got so much colder.

No one ever prepares us,
For what truly lies ahead.
When those you love are gone,
And your all that’s left instead.

We spin, and we weave,
Like tomorrow will never come.
Never truly are we ready,
Not till all is said and done.

Our memories are all we have,
And photographs of the past.
The happy times, and the sad ones,
Finally realizing nothing lasts.

Yes, when I was a little boy,
I couldn’t wait to be grown up.
And living as a young man,
How could I have had such luck?

And now that I’m older,
I miss my little truck.. .

  3. A brilliant piece, Bill. So much truth; so many echo’s of the realities that we each find ourselves in.

    I always tell my children, (as did my parents, me), enjoy your childhood, it’s such a fleeting thing. I scoffed back then but now…as and adult who has successfully raised his own family, I can see what they were saying and its so true and especially today as society wants our children and grandchildren to grow up so much quicker now. No time for fun and games or adventure.

    There is a child now trapped within this crumbling shell that I call a body that so wishes it could be free again; free to live the life it knew way back then…

  5. Your poem actually brought tears to my eyes. I’m not a big fan in poetry even though I might dabble in it myself. But this poem is special. Thank you.
