A happy memory runs in my head.
Of the warm summery day in July.
As I ran and watched the delight spread
A feeling of happiness starts to fly by
Remembering the starry silent nights
As I looked at the photos on my phone.
Thinking of flowery meadow delights
It had never made me feel so alone.
I was thousands of miles from my past.
Forgetting the joy that used to appear.
As a child running and hoping it would last
With absolutely nothing to fear.
As I count down the days until my return
the days become longer, and I feel yearn.
