Poem: ‘Remember’

“Remember” by Capucine Berney

Can you remember?
When yesterday was your childhood
Your smile could not be hammered
And your mind would drift to anywhere it could

But you’re older now
Play time no more
You don’t know how
You think it’s over
Oh, the truth reveals itself

The growing keeps growing from young to old
The time goes faster every day
As you get older, so I’ve been told
These childhood things become harder to say

Because you forget
I don’t know about you, but I’m scared I won’t remember
Can you remember?
Laughing broke into crying
But your happiness won sadness over
And your tears came to an end in toothless singing

But you’re older now
Play time no more
You don’t know how
You think it’s over
Oh, the truth reveals itself

The growing keeps growing from young to old
The time goes faster every day
As you get older, so I’ve been told
These childhood things become harder to say
Because you forget
I don’t know about you, but I’m scared I won’t remember

Just think about it
Please think about it
Hold onto it
Please try
Because…

The growing keeps growing from young to old
The time goes faster every day
