My Long Lost Youth



Oh for the days of my long lost youth Making paper airplanes, watching em glide Looping like barnstorming pilots of the 30s Above the trees like birds on high Our imagination didn't see paper airplanes We saw ourselves as pilots on board Soaring skyward with not a worry in the world We could even hear the engines roar Another favourite pastime was climbing trees Just like the masts on a pirate ship Looking out on the ocean with a telescope A pistol hanging from our hips Another fantasy, being a famous hockey star Heard the cheering of adoring fans Dreaming at night, scoring the winning goal No more school, no more final exams Oh for the old days, hmm I might rethink that It's pretty damn good from where I sit Each stage in live has it's own special happening But so happy for this precious gift!

Your own special way at the end but it is too ugly for the lovely thoughts that precede it. Nevertheless, I agree that each stage of life has its special happenings! :)
