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.
When days were longer and the sun wasn’t as hot
Looking forward to summer and playing all day long
Danced and played in the rain
Running around, sweaty but with a huge smile on my face
Climb trees, scraped my knees
Flew a kite, learned how to ride a bike
Roller blading and falling and getting back up to try again
Yes, I remember those wonderful days

And in the summer, when gardens bloom
I recall the smile that captured my heart
My random heart and my random thoughts
Randomly remembers you…
… And almost all the things you randomly did
To make me laugh just randomly.
I cry randomly,
Because I remember the hurt
And because I know I could never love anybody else as randomly as you.
I still sing the songs you sang
Your favorites that became mine too
They use to make me cry
Now they’re just a reminder
And although sometimes they make me miss you
They also soothe me
And I become fine
The rain washes away the pain
But sometimes it reminds me of it
The rain trickles down my window pane
Slowly erasing the past hurt
It reminds me of you
It reminds me of nothing
It becomes as it is
Just the rain
I still remember the way you talk
I hear your voice as a whisper through the wind
Your smile, cute and sly
Yes! I remember those
And I remember your lies
How you kept me hanging
And how you slowly broke what I wanted to give you
All this I remember as I’m forgetting you
I love you
I just want to say
I never got the chance to really tell you.
I love you
And wished I told you sooner
So I tell the wind to tell you
I love you
Yes, I do love you
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
When I think of Christmas, I think of you
Of how you used to be
Or how we were
But the past we had was a sad one
One I no longer want to live
I still remember you on Christmas,
Just not like how it used to be.
I no longer long for the conversation
No longer wait for your reply
I still remember you on Christmas
But no longer how it felt before
