You Wonder When It Was You Grew Up

But now you look

And you wonder

When it was you grew up

And you think how

Things will never be 

As they were

Or as they are

And these last few months 

Of one chapter

Are all you've got

And on to the next

But you don't feel ready

And that approaching future

Seems so heavy

Searching your mind

For that nonexistent remote

Hit the "Rewind"

Skip the bad

Relive the breezy summer days

And adventures through the woods

With your childhood

Best friend

Maybe slowly grow up again

When you're finally ready.
