I remember when
It was bliss and happiness.
The world was mine
To chose to do
Whatever I choose to do.

No restrictions, no what ifs
Nothing to dim the mix.
Talented, optimistic
That’s what I saw.

I could do it all
Cut thru the impossible
Walk on water
Anything and everything.
Yes, I could do it all.

I smile to see
Those thoughts
That dwelt inside of me.
For life is different now
Than what I did expect.

Not so bad
For I did get
That needed in
Fulfilling my soul
What God expects.
