I remember better days
Greener pastures, faster ways
Longer summers, greater fun
Happier winters, a brighter sun
Lovelier flowers, bigger trees
Better playgrounds with higher swings
A whole wide world filled with mystery
Friendlier people with their minds at ease
A greater innocents to everything
When words of hurt didn't leave quite a sting
The best shower was a downpour of rain
Your parents leaving was the greatest pain
The joy of learning everything new
Not worrying if you dont kow exactly what to do
Living for the present, not regretting the past
Unworried about the future
It didn't matter if you came in last
When mud puddles were playgrounds
And tree houses were forts
When hide and seek was played every night
Ang problems were solved without any fights
Long windy days flying my kite
Sleeping at night with one eye on the light

Excellent - are you saying you don't do those things any longer? Perhaps we should all practice at least one of your lines each day - Don't forget to be a kid - ya know?
