Growing up running free
Playing along in my Cubby House tree
Sunny days, trees of shade
Dirt floor cool
Light breeze pass me gently
Touch my face

Sitting alone with only my thoughts
All is calm
All at peace
My childhood days come flashing back
O where did all the years go by
Thoughts and memories stand still in time
As I sit alone in my Cubby House tree

All is calm
Morning dew on spider webs
I wish I could live forever
In my Cubby House tree

Autumn winds blow throughout the leaves
Finding myself weeping
With the birds and the breeze

Now that I’m grown up and all alone
I still want to go back
To where calm and peace I once found
