Remember when


Remember when.
Remember when the leaves rustled
through the tree.
And the birds would sing their song
throughout the day.
Remember when the sky was always
blue.
And the water always crystal clear.
Remember when the children would
run through fields.
And the parents would only worry
about night fall.
Remember when there was nothing to
worry about
Not a care in the world and only
thoughts of the present.
The leaves have fallen.
The birds have flown away.
The sky is grey.
And the water murkier than the
grossest swamp.
The children are stuck inside in fears
of contamination.
And the parents worried about what
will be put in the sky by the time
morning rolls around.
The thoughts of the people are only
worries.
nobody remembers the clean for it was
hundreds of years ago.
and nobody knows how to get it back.

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
