The Child in You and Me

Remember Me

remember me

Remember me,

remember you,

remember when we were two.

Let’s keep the memories,

let’s keep the child in you and me.

The stars were sparkling diamonds,

high up in the night sky.

The moon would wink at us

and we’d sing a merry tune.

The gently summer rains,

left behind shimmering pearls upon the grass,

you’d try to put them on a string,

but they were such fleeting things.

Remember me,

remember you,

remember when we were two.

Now the years have flown,

but we still have the friendship we had known,

so let’s keep that child in you and me.

The sun would shine upon us

and so happy we would be,

just you and I

and happy childhood sighs.

Building sandcastles,

hoping they’d last forever,

when the tides came in –

they’d washed our castles away.

We’d come back,

to build some more the very next day.

So never forget

and treasure the memories,

when childhood,

was a great adventure.

The clouds in the sky,

were great big sailing ships,

but there were no beanstalks to climb.

Strawberries were sweet,

dripping ice cream cones

and sticky hands.

Chasing butterflies,

across daisy filled meadows.

Gentle summer rains,

brought mud puddles,

just great for splashing

and sending paper ships

to foreign shores.

Time has gone on,

but inside we remain the same.

So remember me,

remember you,

remember when we were two,

side by side just you and I

and childhood smiles far and wide.
