Childhood

Childhood

The days at school playing tetherball, kickball, and handball

I miss you

To waiting to wait to get out of school to go home and play

I miss you

To the nights playing freeze tag outside on the streets until the lights came on

I miss you

To the nights of building tents with sheets, and seats from the couches

I miss you

To pretending the floor is lava

I miss you

To the hot days of waiting for the ice cream truck to pass by

I miss you

To coming home with dirt on our face

I miss you

To playing double dutch in school

I miss you

To having races against our friends to see who was fastest

I miss you

To the jumpers, and slippery slides we had

I miss you

To thinking monsters contained alcohol

I miss you

To all my childhood memories

I thank you
