Small Boys with Big Dreams

I remember when I was a little boy I used to

Have a friend who wanted
To go to Yale to read law;

Another friend who wanted
To drive a manual sports car;

The former is now doing
Something else back home;

The latter is now doing
Nothing to get his driving license;

I spoke to them recently:
They don’t even remember these things.

I guess
People grow up,
Dreams grow old,

Yet forever in time we once were
Small boys with big dreams.

(Happy Birthday Sean.)
