Children playing and dancing in the park. Fun and laughter can be heard till its dark.
Young and care free like we all used to be, nothing to bother you…….its only joy that you seek.
Living for games and sweets to devour, kicking right off at the bedtime hour.
Summer in the sun and paddling pool fun, playing catch with Dad and getting cuddles from mum.
Sausages to eat from the bbq treat, just your swimming costume on, and flip flops on your feet.
Water fight commences between the brother and sister, mum getting a soaking when you could have quite easily missed her.
The night draws in and it’s getting quite late……mum shouts out its nearly bedtime for you mate.
Your head drops to your hands as you know the truth shall reign…..picking up a bucket and soaking your sister again.
Finally you give in and upstairs you do trundle…..tired and wet carrying your clothes in a bundle.
Pyjamas are on and you climb into your bed…..mum pulls the quilt up and plants a kiss on your head.
Tonight you will dream of all the things that you done……..oh how great it was to be young.
