How we used to laugh
and were so carefree
with wide-eyed wonder
and unfiltered innocence.

These moments are my keepsakes.

We had no worries or fears;
we lived for the present
not realizing how short-lived
our youth would last.

These memories are my souvenirs.

Everything was a new experience,
but we never knew that
nothing lasts forever.
