Old People Remember


Old people remember-
growing up to be grown
Old people remember-
the years
that have come and gone
Old people remember-
when they
used to laugh and play
just like the children
of today
Old people remember-
when their skin
was soft and smooth
Old people remember-
the days of their youth

And a wide realm of wild reality,
