MEMORIES

MEMORIES
As I sit in class
I remember us playing in the grass
We were so happy then
Playing with coins of ten
Our favorite game was chess
You could run down the fields with a chase
We fed on popcorn and water
I called you one name, Walter
You always kissed my cold feet
And brought me shoes that fit
We used to share one shawl
As we sat by the fire in the shaw
We used to stare lovingly at the stars
Because a deep emotion they stirred
Its just the memories that still linger
Of how we used to frequently bicker
Now you’re a forgotten story
But in my heart, you’re a living history
Of a beautiful love once shared
