I Don't Want to Forget

I don’t want to forget those moments that I replay in my head
I don’t want to let go of that hope that I felt
I still feel the breeze as it passed by my face
I sill hear your voice in the back of my head
I don’t think I will ever live to see the day
When anyone comes close to making me relive those days

For once I felt alive,
I felt like a child
I had no cares in this world
I was accepted and I was pure

My thoughts were filled with optimism and hope
My life had purpose again
I had the power to put a smile on someone’s face
I was doing something right once again

Those eyes, they said it all.
Those days said more than words ever could & ever will

But this is where fear comes in.

You can never go back to the past
But can you keep it alive?
Will I ever see those days again?
Or will I only have the memory of them in my heart?

I know where I stand.
I am here.
I am me.

But is that enough?
Or do I have to change?
