When Was The Last Time You Were A Child?

When was the last time you were a child,

when were you free and wild?

Children’s eyes are free to see,

children show us all that we can be.

 

When was the last time you fooled around,

when was the last time you admired the sound

of your laughter, of the voice from your mother

from the noise that comes from the streets at your counter.

Have you ever stopped and began to see,

how magical each moment can be?

 

I wonder,

when was the last time you wandered,

without destination, for the love to explore and discover?

Without a need to arrive, taking in all there is,

Stop, come to a halt –

have you already smelled the roses?

 

When was the last time you embraced a stranger,

when the last time you saw no danger,

When was the last time you danced around,

singing songs you always wanted to be your sound.

 

When was the last time you looked to the sky,

Wondering where those clouds may fly?

When was the last time you believed to jump so high,

Fyling with the birds, enjoying life.

When was the last time you believed to be a scholar or a doctor,

When was the last time you painted dreams in your colour?

 

Children are our greatest teachers,

they could be our greatest preachers.

If life seems rough,

all the magic seems to part,

ask yourself:

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

When was the last time you saw the world from the eyes of a child?
