When? When did the snowfall Lose it’s magic? When did the night sky Commence to look small? It was when I grew up… When did the past Become so tragic When did the shadows Start to fall It was when I grew a little older… When did the sunset Lose it’s wonder When did the sunrise Lose it’s ability to awe It was when I grew old and jaded… When did people’s names Become so hard to remember When did I lose The love of September I think… I think it was when I got older still…. When did I start crying At the smallest sad thing When did my memory Begin to take wing I think it was…. I’m almost sure it was… But I can’t exactly remember ...Just when...
