I remember
When we would play
King of the mountain
On your freshly made bed
Mommy would be mad at us
But we wouldn’t care

I remember
How I would let you win
Just to see you shine
When you would say
“I beat my big sis!”

I remember
How your brown hair
Bounced when you would
Run up and hug me
Your big blue eyes
Widened in excitement

But now your image is just
A picture in a frame
And all I can do now
Is remember.

my favorite thing about this writing is how you told us what your talking about without actually saying it in so many words.

I can't remember it clearly, but it went something like this:

"The past is the past, the future is the furture. But now, now is like a gift, which is why it is called present."

nice :) I like it.
