EXAMPLE:

REMEMBERING WHEN

I remember when…
Gas was just under a dollar a gallon
And we swore we’d never pay more
Yet here I am at the gas station pumping
And it’s nearer now to four…

I remember when…
Grand-maw was still young
And we’d run and rip in the yard
Yet here I sit now alongside her bed
losing her will be so hard
