There was a room, inside which a sleeping child. The room is a representation of life, and the child is itself a dormant memory of childhood, of innocence.

A child was sleeping,
 
At the corner of an empty room. 
 
The shutter was open,
 
The curtain was drawn. 
 
The radio was on. 
 
It played the song. 
 
It played the jazz. 
 
It played the pop. 
 
The room was noisy,
 
Filled with TV whining,
 
And radio humming. 
 
But the child was asleep,
 
Dreaming his dream. 
 
Once upon a time, once upon a time.
