Know My Name

When I was young
I wanted to fly to the moon
discover a star
look down to the Earth and croon

And when I was young
I wanted to design a plane
powered by the sun
that could bring a cloud and rain

And when I was young
I wanted to plant a tree
that always had fruit
That could feed all the hungry

But instead, I wrote this song
and I don’t think that’s so wrong
Because at least one star in the sky is mine
and whenever I see the rain, I fly
and I take food to the street corner guy
and when we sit and talk at night in the rain
I may not have changed the world
or acquired universal fame
but the ones I take the time to Love know my name

I didn't have my glasses on....

A trip through life with fingers crossed and eternal optimism.

Daydreaming as a profession

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
