Remember The Day

Written by: Ann Anderson

Do you remember
childhood ways
flipping pebbles
through crested waves.

Your innocence
not a thought of mind
just a child
enjoying time.

Bobby Jo
my best freind
wanted the day
to never end.

For young in years
he could foresee
this was the best
it was ever going to be.

So don't let
childhood wonder
fade away
the day.

The day on weathered sands
an ice cream dripping
through sand castled hands.

Mum and Dad
looking on
hankerchieved heads
when now a sarong.

Don't let those days
leave your soul
for they won't come back
those days of old.
