I long for a time that’s forever gone

Back when they were here

When bruise knees were kissed to make it better

Tissues for my tears

When school was out and vacations were planned

Back when they were here

My biggest worry was what I would wear

Whispers in my ear

I had to wait ‘til the end of the day

Back when they were here

To see and talk, sharing life’s ups and downs

In the strange frontier

My life was certainly a lot different

Back when they were here

The true meaning of a lifetime ago

Peers at me through tears

So, I spend today thinking of the time

Back when they were here

Smiles will come from all the fun that we had

That I hold so dear
