The old days where we would dance overjoyed
Throughout our simple home,
Where we would become the grandest performers
On the bricks of the narrow fireplace ledge,
Where we would cry at the
Faintest of scares.
Your tears have always been my weakness,
As your domino collapses
Down I go
Cushioning your fall.
Your deepest emotions trigger mine,
And that will never change over time.
I forever am thankful for that.
Now we drive and sing our hearts out.
We stay up and watch the clock strike 12,
But something is different now.
We’ve lost a part of our youth, our innocence.
Our growing maturity serves us well,
Yet I wish I could go back
Because I miss when we could laugh and hug for hours
Without a care in the world
As long as we each wore a smile.
Inspired by the song “Weakness (Huey Lewis)” by Lennon Stella
