Never say goodbye, because goodbye means going away, and going away means forgetting.

When I grow up I want to be,
A sailor on the briny sea,
On a magnificent galleon careless and free,
Poseidon’s vast ocean at my decree,
Someday I’ll sail the briny sea

When I grow up I want to be,
The writer of a trilogy,
About the lonely misfits three,
From challenges they will not flee,
Someday I’ll write a trilogy

When I grow up I want to be,
A dinosaur from which creatures flee,
I’ll eat little dinos that challenge me,
Roam the jungles wild and free,
Someday a dinosaur I’ll be

I will not grow up, I want to be,
One of Never land’s lost boys with my own fairy,
I’ll play with Indians and pirates and live in a tree,
I’ll run amuck on land, sky, and sea,
Someday I’ll be a lost boy with my own fairy


The author's comments:
As young children we all had wild and crazy dreams, but just because they're no longer logical doesn't mean we want them any less.

If anyone has any other crazy childhood dreams not mentioned here, please send them to me! Or just write them out here. My friend Kathia told me about the dinosaur one
