Who We Never Were. - Poem by Twilight Whispers

We were young and we didn’t care
About the dirt on our faces or the state of our hair
We were more concentrated on smiling at you.

We were young and we didn’t care
About the colour of the sky or the freshness of the air
I was more concentrated on singing to you.

Who could have thought we’d end up this way
It was bound to happen someday
Who could have dreamed that we wouldn’t meet until today?
So it’s goodbye to the childhood we never knew.

We were young and we didn’t care
That the ways of mankind were dreadfully unfair
I was more concentrated on dreaming of you

We were young and we didn’t care
About being cautious of wear and tear,
I was more concentrated on thinking of you.

Who could have thought we’d end up this way
It was bound to happen someday
Who could have dreamed that we wouldn’t meet until today?
So it’s goodbye to the childhood we never knew.

We were young and we didn’t care
About the dirt on our faces or the state of our hair
We were more concentrated on smiling at you.

We were young and we didn’t care
About the dirt on our faces or the state of our hair
We were more concentrated on smiling at you.
