The day still hides warm on my skin
As I walk past the beach
Where the sun hides away
And children still frollic
In tiny voices
Echoing to me.
I want to be there again
Though I am only twenty-three
My heart falls short of
Its long ago song
Into a lullaby I can't quite remember.
I want to try with everything in my chest
To sing into the dying wind
To sling the water about
And make ripples that never end
So that it may bring back the days
The warm summer days
Maybe I will try tomorrow
To sing like the children
In a voice all grown-up
Untill the sun falls
And the children go home
And I pray for a dream
to bring me back again.

I know it's kind of sloppy prose, but I try.
