The Days of Coloring Horses Blue

The days lost past

The days that are gone

The days I once knew

Of coloring horses blue.

The life that was fun

The life that I loved

The life filled with many a friend

Shouldn't have come to it's abrupt end.

The doors opened

The doors closed

The doors creak

As time passes, week after week

The school year went on

The school year's end, I dreaded

The school's end would come

I counted the days, one by one.

The family moved on

The family was happy

The family cared not

But I was distraught

I missed my friends

I missed my room

I missed my school

Even though it wasn't that cool.

I struggled through high school

I made it through college

I still missed my friends

And school years which had no ends.

I've lived through life to tell my tale

I've finally met up with my friends

I've loathed every moment of it

But hardly without a fit.

My friends are all grown

My friends still remember

My friends don't much like me

Now that we're thirty.

The life I loved

The life I miss

The days long gone

Oh, so far gone.

The days long past

The days that are gone

The days I once knew

Of coloring horses blue.
