A Happiness Remembered In A Dream

A happiness remembered in a dream:
A baby on my shoulder, nodding off,
Emitting little noises and a warmth
And sweetness like no other thing on earth;
As I sing every song I know, and try
To turn each one into a lullaby.
And then on waking suddenly, the shock,
Of finding that the baby is a man.
I plan and scheme in every way I can
But there’s  no way of turning back the clock.
