Let me look back and tell you of my fond memories
My memories of my childhood
When things were simple and fun despite most of it not going all too well.
Let me tell you of how the old days were
Of how there were more trees than skyscrapers
Of how fresher the air was.
I look back having remembered some of the things that happened during the war
How we hid
How we heard the bombings while huddled and hidden.
I remember my teenage years
The dances, the friends and even some of the funny stories
I remember my teachers and look back being thankful for them.
I look back hoping you’d share my excitement too
One day, you too will be looking back on your life
And I hope you remember me when you do.
Will you recall the days?
Will you remember the times?
Will you remember me?
You don’t know what’s going on
I see in your eyes how lost you are
I will help you
Regain the memories
The one’s that you keep losing
The one’s you didn’t intend to lose
Sometimes I do a rewind
Recall all things that happened
Try to solve the puzzle when I should enjoy the ride
Sometimes I go back to yesterday
Because today you seem so far
Because you confuse me
Because I’m trying to read the signs
I do not know what you really feel
Maybe I should just stop and let it all be
Maybe I should just take it all back
And keep it hidden somewhere far
But then you pull me back again
And I am at a loss
And so I go back to yesterday
Right when I gave my heart to you, willingly
And I’m content
