One Last Time...

One last time
Let's run through the sprinklers
Laugh till our stomachs hurt
Color outside the lines
Pick our noses in public
Smile involuntarily

One last time
Let's do all the things of our past
Of our childhood

Let's do them now
Before we have to
Power walk, instead of run
Roll our eyes, instead of laugh
Buy art, instead of make our own
Cringe at any lack of manners, instead of being chastised for not having any
Smile to cover our sorrow

One last time
Let's be happy
Before we have to conform for the chance to have a future
Let's do it now
Before it's too late
Before we have to grow up
