    Take me back

    I want to go to the park
    And sit on a low swing
    A little too small
    Drag my shoes in the dirt
    And think about
    Times of innocence
    Remember childhood freedoms
    And laughter.

    I want to go to the shore
    And sit just where the waves
    Don't reach
    Sift sand through my fingers
    And remember the hopeful
    Days of new adulthood
    Remember how big the world seemed
    Almost limitless.

    I don't want to sit at home
    Facing disappointments
    Thinking about
    All my failures
    Remembering childhood joys
    And youthful possibilities.
