I remember when…

I remember when –

Saturdays were for cartoons

And sleeping in late.

I remember when –

Days seemed to last forever

And nights went to quick.

I remember when –

Christmas felt so far away

But was done too soon.

I remember when –

Birthdays were celebrated

And not so dreaded.

I remember when –

Mom made sure I was awake

And not my alarm.

I remember when –

Cookies and brownies were great

And not to be feared.

I remember when –

Life felt like it had no end

And the world felt huge.

I remember when –

Dreams were meant to be epic

And totally seized.

I remember when…

I'm older than I think I am and younger than I feel. I'm stuck in the 80's but relevant to today (oh I hope that last part is true). I think I am more of an enigma than I really am, but somehow still confound those who try to figure me out (or they just look at me weird, so I infer that). And I really hate my first name. Husband, father, Navy Vet, UCF graduate, cat owner (translate.. slave), wannabe writer, and all around big kid who is stuck in an adult world. Overall, I just... um.. something to something, blah blah blah. And that's all I got to say about that.
