Searching

by Anne Di Baguette


Searching for a piece of me


One I left behind


Perhaps it’s on a backyard swing


Or up that tree I climbed


 



I might have dropped it skipping rope


Or bouncing on the bed


Running barefoot through the city park


Or digging in the sand


 



When rustling trees created wind


I’m sure I had it then


All I needed was the perfect wave


To bring me sailing in


 



Grassy hills were meant to roll down


Snow was made to throw


Maybe it’s sitting on the playground


My pocket had a hole


 



When clouds were really animals


And mountains sleeping men


Kool-aid was elixir


Jellybeans were vitamins


 



Promises were things you gave


And also things you kept


Once the things I couldn’t change


Were things I could accept


 



When heaven was a place you go


To rest and be with friends


Back when love implied forever


Always meant it wouldn’t end


 



Seeking just a little bit


Of me that I’ve misplaced


I’m sure that I could find it


If my steps could be retraced
