I knew it all but not enough
getting out wasn’t so tough
leaving my footprints all over the place
knowing I’d be back to carefully retrace.
It was everything I ever wanted
my dreams were never haunted
keep it small and nice
this place is going to suffice.
Everything took off from there
I never figured out what to wear
focussing on the columns across
never acknowledging a loss.
More fun than I can remember
snow ball fights in the middle of December
folding up and getting out
then I knew what we were all about.
Hide the wish with some humour
go on feed me the latest rumour
only a spot for one
do or die I’m second to none.
Each day was a last chance
still never found the right pants
pull it in close
I may never get another dose.
That was it for now
we answered all the questions except for how
never gave permission for this to go quicker
all I see now is a little flicker.
Today I count up to seven
for some reason it feels like eleven
and my heart is in another place
remembering the smile on each and every face.
