I hear a song and it takes me back to when I was a kid. Fishing at the pond, catching frogs, crawfish and snakes in the creek. Ghost in the grave yard, freeze tag. Tree forts and soda pop belly laughs and skinned knees. Listening to the radio waiting to hear a requested song, and laughing when they broadcast me making the request …for all to hear The first time I kissed a girl in the back of the movie theater. The first time I had my heart broken What happened to the time. Where did it go. High school then college Marriage, kids And then divorce We take ourselves for granted We take for granted the people we care about. Then it’s too late time has slipped away. As I lament to the waning moon Forty years have rolled by. I think about what I have and haven’t done. I find my self wanting to go back. Back to …….. Fishing at the pond, catching frogs, crawfish and snakes in the creek, ghost in the grave yard and freeze tag. Tree forts and soda pop belly laughs and skinned knees. The first time I kissed a girl in the back of the movie theater. The first time I had my heart broken D.Casabonne © 4.16.03 All Rights Reserved
