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
