When I Was Young

Walt's Writings

When I Was Young

When I was young
I could fly like an eagle
high into the sky

I could swim in the ocean
diving deep to explore
the bottom of the sea

I could run like the wind
jumping fences
with the horses

I could climb every mountain
all the way to the tops
and talk to God

I could ride my bike
where I wanted to go
in sunshine, through rain and even snow

I’m no longer young now
time has taken its toll
I can’t do the things
that I once did before

but I cherish
those memories
and need nothing more
