When

Remember when all seemed within reach?

When you’d skip and dance down dark streets?

When obstacles seemed like cracks in the pavement

That were meant to be avoided or simply walked over?

Remember when singing made you smile?

And eating didn’t mean you’d have to jog a mile?

Remember when falling in love was the goal,

And doing it a million times made you feel whole?

Remember when you didn’t have time to remember

Because you were simply living and giving and reaching and doing,

And it was fine to want because it was a given you’d get?

That was when you embraced your wild streak

And you ran in the park with barefeet

And you laughed til you stomach hurt and you spit up your yogurt.

Remember when?

It would be great to be that you again –

Wouldn’t it?
