When I was a child I dreamed
Of fortified castles and dragons,
Of spaceships and being beamed,
Of a train with a thousand wagons,
So long until I was content,
I dreamt of great battles and excitement,
To be the one who would invent
The colours of the rainbow,
Of free time and enchantment,
I dreamed of hate, I dreamt of love,
Of a ship made of stone and me at its bow,
Of an ancient magical glove
That could take me into the stars,
I dreamed of incredible robot cars,
Of flying like a bird high in the sky,
I saw monsters so frightening
From which I was running as fast as lightning
Not knowing if I would wake up to cry,
When I was a child I dreamt
Of princesses and lost cities,
Of candy in great quantities,
But now it is over; I am contempt.
