When Life was trouble free
By Diann Sheldon

I remember as a child
Walking barefoot in the rain
Jumping in the puddles
Life was just a game

Warm water splashing on me
From the hot afternoon ground
Life was trouble free
As the world it spun around

Remembering the smell of hot tar
On the blacktop cooled by rain
How clean and green the trees were
And the air it smelled the same

Laughing so hard my stomach would hurt
My cheeks would ache from smiling
This was many years of yesterdays
When life was still beguiling

Jumping up and down in puddles
With every ounce of strength
Water splashing on me
My face and hair are drenched

Water running down my hair
And dripping in my eyes
Wet arms outstretched as I spun
With eyes fixed to the sky

There I see the clouds
Creating faces upon high
Oh Look! A guardian angel
With a twinkle in itís eye

I remember life
When life was trouble free
I remember life
But will life remember me?
