What you did.
It seems I’ve been running, running all my life
Only slowing occasionally to catch my breath or glimpse the world’s beauty
Daily I press onward, setting new goals and chasing after new deadlines
Moving forward without reflection.
I guess I had never really set time aside for recollection.
That is until that day…
T h a t day…
T H A T DAY …
It was that day I realized just what had been taken from me
Those precious moments of my youth
A time for role models to help or develop a child or…
I wanted to reflect on those wonderful years. I really did!
I really did!
But somewhere in the middle of freeze tag, kick the can, and mud pies
There are times I don’t want to remember at all.
My childhood, sealed and stored in a hazy fog
somewhere in the back of my brain.
Not because of what I’ve done, but because of what you did
… And you know what you did.
