Remember when we use to spit watermelon seeds under stars,
sending them sailing into the Summer sky,
guided by the sound of laughter lifting off the lawn?
Remeber how we stayed awaked,
pillowfights from dusk till dawn?
Remember when we swam in our own pleasure
and dug for pebbles with our toes?
Remember all the fish we caught,
and the thousands we freed?
Remember the hot cocoa that calmed after we killed
one another in a friendly snowball fight?
Remember when we used to iceskate
till our hearts were numb,
and frostbitten by friendships,
freezing with the warmth within?
Remember the fires and the fields,
and the fire flies flying free like phantoms?
Remember how you use to keep them in a jar?
Remember how you cried,
And I couldn't help but follow your lead?
Remember how the hot tears of happiness felt?
Remember the B.B. gun battles,
or the broken bones we laughed to help heal?
Remember all the falls,
or the scars that followed,
the rocks we threw
or the bugs we shallowed?
Remember the tree house
we called Fort Sumter?
Remember the power of our palm pact?
remember the blood?
Remember how it felt,
when we crossed our cuts,
and couldn't care less?
