What do you miss ??


What I Miss

I miss the excitement of youth

The mystery of not knowing

The joy of winning the game

Being exhausted but happy.

My mothers supporting words

My brothers laugh and smile

The pursuit of the goal

The endless energy once mine.

Our house full of laughter

Carrying on with my friends

The smell of a warm barn

The kitchen wood stove

Swimming in the river

Climbing in evergreens

Fishing all day

Wandering through the woods

Doing nothing if I want

Sleeping until noon

Having the summer off

I miss being a kid.
