Sometimes, life throws us curve balls. And it is not our job to watch the pitch, but to swing. better to swing for the fence than to go down looking. you never know, one of these days, you could possibly hit a homerun.


The summer day is hot and warm
You splash in the pool to cool down.
Do you remember those days?
The days of fall when the leaves grew red
When you raked them into piles to jump on them?
Do you remember the days of winter?
We created snowmen, had snow fights
Do you remember those days?
The days of spring when the rain always fell,
And the flowers sprang up quickly?
Remember?
You remember my soft lips?
Her gentle touch?
His wise words?
Do you remember those times?
When all was well?
When nothing was wrong?
When you were loved and remember?
Do you remember those days?

When you were alive?
