Stuck On My Mind

I always thought it would be
you and me,
forever and eternity
Sittin’ free
beneath the tree
of knowledge and opportunity
sharing dreams and growing old,
hoping that I could hold
your little kids in my arms
who someday play with mine
in the hills or on the grass
breaking bones and skippin’ class,
shootin’ guns and havin’ fun
ya know…
teachin’ them what we had done
but that hope could never last
flatlined
to escape the past
lost with time but never gone
always loved
and stuck on my mind.
