Remember the taunts
Remember the fears
Remember the laughter
Remember the tears

Forget the words
Forget the faces
Forget the times
Forget the places

Take the moments
Combine the pain
Add the insecurities
And don't forget the rain

Now you have it all
Everything you worried about
At the tip of your tongue
Now breathe it out

Really good. I like the idea of it. the ending just seems to be a bit of a cliff hanger. Fix that and make it more "punchy"? and you'd be good to go. Good Job.
