I need to remember

What I have forgotten

The lost wonders of a childhood

The forbidden delights

Of splashing in a puddle

Of running through the rain

The innocent joys

Of laughter without reason

And quickly drying tears

I have forgotten now

But every now and then

Your mischievous smile

And excited voice

Your reproachful looks

And spontaneous hugs

Serve to remind me

Of all that I need to remember
