As you close your eyes at night,
I watch you while you sleep,
I’m there for you whenever you need,
I hold you while you weep.
To live a little isn’t to learn a lot,
It’s to remember the little things that time forgot,
The hidden memories that brought you joy,
A stupid joke or a long lost toy.
We often forget about the little things,
The little moments that gave us wings,
The freedom of life in a single thought,
The laughter and love it brought.
Why should we forget due to everyday stress,
Forgetting and feelings we caress,
It took years for the memories to fade,
But they aren’t gone they’ve only strayed.
Remember Christmas being a kid,
Sitting in a sledge as your bounced and slid,
No responsibilities holding you back,
but now you’ve aged and gone off track.
But lets be honest you’re not dead,
And all that fun is in your head,
So open it up and let yourself see,
The person you was, feeling so free,
It can happen again the fun is inside,
Waiting to be unlocked for you to ride.
