He’s alone in his thoughts as he sits in class. His mind too full of wonder to focus on the task. “Wake up, says his teacher, you’ve got work to do.” “Science and math and a test or two.” But he never hears a word she says. He is lost deep in the fantasy inside his head. He dreams of a world far away Where he can laugh and play. Where girls and boys Can have all the candy and toys. Where dragons can fly And castles soar into the sky. Where monsters roar And eagles soar. Where there are no rules And never a day of school. That is where his mind is at, All day, in that chair he sat. But teacher don’t despair. For while homework he might not care. That boy who you scold Might be the one who changes the world.

Lost Moments

man holding head in hands

Time is money, so they say.
So work hard every hour
And pursue every day.
Get on the ball and
Finish the task
Oh look at the clock,
Time sure went fast…..
Your darling has left you
And your children are grown.
You return to the house
To find it empty and alone.
Time was money,
So you thought.
But that money could never
Bring back the memories you lost.
The moments we have are
Precious and few,
More valuable than money,
If you had only knew.
So use the time wisely
For our days are but a few.
Be sure to tell those you 
Care about, “I love you.”
