I Remember Me


Suddenly, as plain as plain can be,
I see the world as clear as childlike eyes can see,
and I am young again.

Once more. I see the world is fresh and new,
and filled with wonder, and amazing things to do.
Spider webs that sparkle with the sunlit dew,
and I am young again.

The colours of the garden fill my eyes,
Cool green grass, the warm sun flashing rainbows in my eyes,
The fluffy clouds that drift across the pale blue skies,
and I am young again.

What shall I do with this; - my rediscovered youth,
Shall I find a net and hunt for butterflies or newts,
Or shall I sit here in my quiet place, - it matters not,
for I am young again.

I remember me,
And all I ever was is here; - All in life that I held dear,
All that I have ever shared in love has never left,
And I can see it now,
And I am young again.
