The World I Remember.

The World I Remember.

A Poem by Bullet Soul
"

My memories of childhood.

"

I remember the simple things in life.

Even when the sun rises, and my tears dry…

I remember the simple things, that brought a smile to my face.

 

I remember the sunflowers, on the side of the house

Popsicles out on the porch, and jumps right through the sprinkler.

Water fights and bike rides, ice cream scoops and dress up games.

 

I remember when you smiled, and told me that you loved me

I remember the days, before love lost its meaning

And became a common word, drawn across each of our lips.

 

I’ll never forget the trips to Florida, finding shark teeth on the beach

Losing a pair of sunglasses, as I chased you through the sand.

Tidal waves and fishing, bring memories that never end.

 

The days we spent together, the trips to Disney World.

Visiting with Mickey Mouse, winning rides in airport limos

Parades for spring Birthdays, and flights straight back to Michigan.

 

Water parks and sleigh rides, as we hiked right through that snow

Trips up to the cottage, driving golf carts through the woods

Boat rides and summer parties, surrounded by the ones we love

 

A trip down to Lake Michigan, a hotel that we hated

A week away at camp, spent homesick yet excited.

Here’s to the family moments, and the love that never ends.

 

The future will bring chaos, arguments and quests

To find the meaning of a life, we sometimes wish could end

Never knowing the that answers still lay in our hands.

 

Journeys through eternity, to find the love we thought we lost

But that will always burn in the souls, of the ones forever near

The ones with whom we share our memories, until the very end

 

Singing along to Shania, in the back of your old car

Tubing down the river, with true laughter in our hearts

Cherishing the bonds we share, that we know will never break.

 

My childhood was not so bad, despite my trying future

The past is who I am, and though these flames may burn my soul

I’ll go down like a fighter, remembering my home.

This is such a beautiful poem. Reading it reminded me of my childhood. I wrote a poem about my childhood as well but it is nowhere near as good as this. So many great lines full of truth:
"The future will bring chaos, arguments and quests
To find the meaning of a life, we sometimes wish could end"
also
"But that will always burn in the souls, of the ones forever near
The ones with whom we share our memories, until the very end"
Such great lines. However I think the last three lines are my favorite.
Awesome job. Thoroughly enjoyed this piece.
