I wish I were a child again
If only to remember when
We both were young, so long ago
And life was our own picture show.
We laughed and loved, it was such fun
For us our world had just begun
Each moment held a new surprise
It warmed our hearts and teared our eyes.
I’m sorry that it didn’t last
But left behind its storied past
To still tug on these old heartstrings
With sadness that forever clings !
