How time passes you by.
I miss the weeks
where days would pass by
With no hint of which was next,
And when it rained cats and dogs,
It led to new pets.
I miss the days
where ABCs and 123s were
as hard as is it ever got.
Where mum and dad smiled
and money scarcely grew on trees.
I miss the times
where climbing branches
made me into “Queen of the Tree”
Where each step felt like it could
be the start of an everlasting march.
I miss the hours
spent under the duvet with a torch,
pretending and dreaming of the great outdoors
and mountains and so much more.
I miss the seconds
where worry was nothing
and stress did not exist in my world;
Back in the days of being a 5 year old girl.
