Do you remember?





Do you remember the days

that you and I
climped to the top of
the highest tree
and tried to touch the sky?

Do you remember the time

When you and I
hidden behind the bushes
played the couple in love?

Do you remember the nights

That you and I
past bed time
played pillow fight
and broke the bed?

Do you remember?

When we were chasing
butterflies?

Do you remember?

The sandcastle we built
before the waves washed it away.

Those were the days
when we still believed.

Do you remember
what we believed?

I forgot. ...

Very nice twist at the end. I really enjoyed this poem. It's insightful, melancholy, and effectively sentimental. Excellent work.

Sad that only one can remember or neither does--that is why, I think, we write -- to preserve those memories. Growing up doesn't have to mean forgetting what was so important then- - - a legacy even for children who are remembering what we too soon forget
