When I Was Young

Family & Memories

Hopscotch boards,

we drew with chalk.

Throwing our pebbles,

on the sidewalk.

Playing dress-up,

to be a little miss.

Chasing the boys,

to try and steal a kiss.

Blowing big pink bubbles,

with our chewing gum.

Just a few things,

I did when I was young.

A game of hide-n-seek,

sunny days in the park.

We wouldn't go home,

till it was almost dark.

Hearing the ice-cream man,

when he would ring his bell.

We'd run to get our money,

for the treats that he did sell.

Thinking back with a smile,

of the childish songs we sung.

Just a few more things,

I did when I was young.
