Childhood Nights

Childhood Nights

A Poem by Tate Morgan

How sweet our former lives.


me Tony Kernie

Me on the left Tony in the middle and Kerny on the right




In dreams of my sweet former life

 with the wonders childhood poses

I find those friends I left behind

still so young and fresh like roses

I wonder if to them I'm old

when they think upon occasion

Do they wonder as, I do

of that inner child's persuasion

To me they are the cherished ones

memories of lost summer nights

When we played hide and seek till dark

enriched by all life's smells and sights

In dreams they live on as before

echoes of games we use to play

I start each night as they ended

with the dreams from yesterday



To see my books click on the pictures to take you to them

We are every place we ever visited and every person we've ever known .. I didn't write that but it rings so true for this beautiful poem. Yours words are wistful and longing, and, i rather think the memories are what makes you the person you are...

'To me they are the cherished ones. Memories of sweet kind summer nights. When we played hide and seek till dark. Enriched by all life's smells and sights. ' ... lovely words.

Full of nostalgia for childhood memories..............I have my own and they are very dear to me as well. Nice write, from the heart.

childhood friends seem to remain children in our memories, even tho many they might still be our friends as adults. they will forever be young to us & we to them. that's the beauty of having such old friendships. a gorgeous write.

Very powerful. You really have a knack at writing. I'd like to know, if it's not to much trouble, what you meant when you said that the life you lived was "darkened".
Very powerful, once again.

"Memories of sweet kind summer nights.

i loved the last stanza and the last 2 lines are indeed my favorite.

With the dreams from yesterday."
