Remembering a life long passed,
Played with dolls, ran through the tall grass, chased squirrels, climbed trees, and scraped my knees.
A first kiss so new and exciting.
Feels like an eternity has passed.
What a gift it would be to turn back time, to feel all those new and firsts. Remembering how easy life was, simple and free.
Love felt so good, it was easy, laughing, exploring, swimming and having fun.
How did all that turn into fear? Hate? Self doubt and regret?
Spending all the year in the sun, and making up a little song, walk around without a destination, smell the gravel road, laugh at nothing and everything and chase a dragonfly.
But now I lost another love, gained another broken heart, and cry myself to sleep.
Reality bites me with overdue bills, piles of chores, work, kids, bad breakups, burying memories and dreams of what I wanted to be.
Remember when we used to know everything, now I know nothing.
