I Was Young Once – Written Friday 18th June 2021 (Aged 46)

I Was Young Once

i was young once
all my secrets
so far away
a heart full of thoughts
so much to say
how those days
seem so far away
they came and went
before even i knew
everything was different
those sacred days
when love
flowed from our eyes
and confusion was on top
they came and went
and now we look back
at places and faces
we once knew
i was young once
and then i grew
and change came on
steady and relentless
with dream laden eyes
they came with tenderness
but i know
i was young once
