Remembering When

I remember when...
I was this little girl,
laughing the day away,
never fearing the world,
never thinking it would all go away.

I remember when...
I would play with my brothers,
smile at everyone in sight,
run up to my mother,
and never lose a fight. 

I remember when...
I was known for my high spirits,
for never frowning or being down,
it was then I met the culprit,
who turned my life around.

I remember when...
I cried so much that night,
thinking I was nothing,
I wanted everyone out of my sight,
I felt like quitting.

I remember when...
after that day, I faked a smile,
I cracked a few laughs, not one was real.
Everyone thought I was fine all the while.
Not one knowing I needed to be healed.

I remember when...
I met some real friends,
these people helped me get better.
They were by my side till the end,
not one left me for another.

I remember when...
I got better and smiled a real smile,
when I laughed a real laugh,
I would always run the miles,
hoping it would always last.
