Do You Remember When?
Little girls and boys
by mestup poems
Playing with imaginary toys
Waking up all warm and safe
With their innocence stored in faith
When moms and dads, they held us tight
They taught us love and not to fight
Where your world is a sand box, warm and gritty
And your first true love was a calico kitty
Untouched and pure
Kind and true
Where families held together and parents did too
Can you remember when, way back when?
When hearts weren’t shattered into pieces for sport
When lives again and again weren’t torn all apart
Where nothing could put them back together again
Not all the kings’ horses and all the kings’ men
Do you…. remember when?
