I'll Take That Walk Again

by Thomas K. Hunt

We were there in the beginning
Pieces still remain
The eyes see the loss
The heart pays the cost
While nothing remains the same

We used to walk along the tracks
Warmed by the soft summer sun
Lie down in a deep bed of grass
When the day was done

Blanketed by the stars at night
Lost in true content
Those were the years of innocence
Those years were heaven sent

Running wild, full of freedom
Made right choices alone the way
A smile forms from just a thought
When I drift back to those days

Chances taken mistakes made
With fun along for the ride
A beautiful beginning
That can never be denied

Flying high behind the pilots mask
Hoping for a smooth flight
Careful with your landing
You don’t want to crash tonight

Lost among the islands
With everywhere to go
Everywhere you look
You see someone you know

Though the tracks are long gone
I’ll take that walk again
Lay myself in the tall grass
Beside a lifelong friend
