THESE YEARS OF LIMBO

They took down the yellow and green blinking
Lights today
On New Year's day I was working
The holidays came and passed so quickly
They don't seem to last as long as they use to
I didn't get to call on all my friends
Memory wasn't the problem
Time was
As a child my impatience made me crazy
And today the lack of time does

I ride the bus stop to stop
Take trains station to station
Over and over again
Sometimes I think that I am still six
Sleeping and dreaming on that green throw rug
In Mrs. Moore's first grade classroom
I'll wake up and all this life will have been
A dream just years in limbo
I will go to reading class then
Escorted to the big yellow busses
To greet mommy at the corner

I loved my youth
I could be six a lifetime and stay
With mommy and daddy brother and Sammy forever
But I won't wake from that dream
I am grown and must move my life
In these years of limbo to my desired fashion
To make me happy again
Good-bye sweet innocence I've loved you
