The Time

I can recall a time when everything was okay 
when the pressures of life didn't affect me in any way 
I can remember a time when everything was alright 
when I never had to try to be the winner of this fight 
I remember a time when things seemed to be fine 
when from this world I had no desire to decline 
I can remember a time when I was actually happy 
when now in reality I'm just sad and snappy 
I can remember a time when saying no was an ease 
when all I do now, is things for other people to please 
I can remember a time when my house was my home 
when presently all my feet want to do is roam 
I can recall a time when friends could be found 
when in reality-they're a bit thin on the ground 
I can remember a time when peace reigned in my mind 
when at the moment certainty is hard to be defined 
I can recall the saying-burying your head in the sand 
when all I really need is a helping hand
