Summer Memories

Peering through the windows of my mind
Remembering summers long ago
Down by the creek seeing what’s to find
There a lizard, here a rock like an oh

Off on our bikes to the baseball field
You bring the bat, I have the ball
A stick for a sword, a warrior’s shield
We play all day till we hear mothers call

Racing back home our dinner to eat
Back out to play as quick as we can
Rest in the shade of a tree from the heat
Fetch with the dog how swiftly he ran

I miss those days, the freedom we had
Now I work the whole summer long
I once was the kid but now I’m the dad
Now summer days to my children belong
