When

When?

When did the snowfall
Lose it’s magic?
When did the night sky
Commence to look small?

It was when I grew up…

When did the past
Become so tragic
When did the shadows
Start to fall

It was when I grew older…

When did the sunset
Lose it’s wonder
When did the sunrise
Lose it’s ability to awe

It was when I grew old and jaded…

When did people’s names
Become so hard to remember
When did I lose
The love of September

I think… I think it was when I got older still….

When did I start crying
At the smallest sad thing
When did my memory
Begin to take wing

I think it was….I’m almost sure it was…
But I can’t exactly….remember just
when
