My Forever Place Online

Poem – Simply Life


Childhood Innocence


I wish I was still a child
Playing out in the rain
For hours of endless fun
Instead of washing away the pain
The street lights were the end of your day
Not an empty bed
Or thoughts running through your head
Wish I didnt know now
What I didnt know then
Youth is wasted on the young
But they’re spared reality
Sometimes I wonder
If this is as good as it gets
The roller coaster of ups and downs
Life was simple when
Ice cream was your only thought
Your friends were forever
and love was butterfly kisses and handshakes
