'm sitting here,
thinking to myself
what happened to all I know?
Where did the laughter go
when the candyman came ringing by?
what happened to the tears
of joy that sprung from
songs so eloquently sung?
What became of the beetles,
the butterflys and the little children
that frolicked in the grass of the meadow?
What has become the fate of
the feelings of exhileration
at first love, first lust, and first frost?
Where have I put the anticipation
of laughter, of sorrow, and fear
when meeting, leaving and losing you?
I'm sitting here
thinking to myself
what happened to all I know?
I ruminate further
answer in sight
as I pour another shot.

It's definitely a poem to be shared. It's great, it made me think and I thank you for that.

we can only breathe
