I Remember

I remember when I was a child I’d stay up late
and watch the sun set in the horizon every night
Those golden evenings remained with me
through the grey mornings that followed

I remember the excitement of every Summer’s day
as I wandered in my garden under a sapphire sky
Then every afternoon I’d play with my friends
laughing like it could never end

I remember when I was happy
I remember when I sad
but no matter how trivial
I would do anything
to feel that way again

I remember waking up early every sunny morning
excited for what the day held for me
The dark clouds that patterned my later years
were only a shadow beneath the skyline

All I can do now is leave this place
and try to find a happily ever after
somewhere else
Maybe find a soul mate
to help me find my path in this life
and never look back

I remember when I was happy
I remember when I sad
but no matter how trivial
I would do anything
to feel that way again 

The End
