One big happy family

this is my story, of when i was youger and how happy i was or think i was i actually have no idea because all the memories of it a pretty much in photos and photos are always happy memories

 

youngest of three
soon to be five
a brother as a best friend
and a sister who can dive
you talk to ghosts while you sleep
three kids to one room
you peek through windows and magazines
memories all blurred and tooned.

what happened to the days
when we all got along
one big happy family
singing happy songs
where did it collapse
when did it fall apart
the only thing that keeps me going
is those memories in my heart

so what happened to those days
we all loved so much
your parents had no arguments
and no one dared to judge
they may just be memories
but they’re the best days of your life
it’s things like this you remember
when you pick up that knife

what happened to the days
when we all got along
one big happy family
singing happy songs
where did it collapse
when did it fall apart
the only thing that keeps me going
is those memories in my heart

good memories forgotten
captured in photos
used to be as happy as anyone
whos been told they’ve won the lotto
but the air then got colder
and a new brother as born
it was time to move on
to a new house at dawn

what happened to the days
when we all got along
one big happy family
singing happy songs
where did it collapse
when did it fall apart
the only thing that keeps me going
is those memories in my heart

The End
