I Remember....

I remember the days of my childhood

Birthdays and teaparties, daycare, and the playground

Often I dream of butterflies and swingsets

I remember the joys of my youth

Sleep-overs, scouting trips, and summer vacations

Oh to be able to splurge my allowance on junk food and oddities once more

I remember the yesteryears of my schooling

Dances, after school sports, and my first boyfriend

It all comes back to me in a rush, making me yearn now for the dusty halls of my old high school

I remember when things were much simpler, and not nearly as worrisome

No bills to pay, or deadlines to meet, nor piles of things-to-do

Just me, myself, and my own little world

Oh how I remember, ever so fondly
