life Pictures, Images and Photos

It seems like long ago
I was swept away by you
Little did I know
Your life experiences were few

Life was brand new
I should have known
You were very young too
I should have been on my own

As the years began to fade
Not heeding advice
Choices I made
Would come with a price

Our livelihood was at stake
We slowly turned the page
That was a mistake
You set the stage

Life would never be the same
Growing up took place
You had to play the game
Your chance to enter the race

Care free years quickly passed
Life is never what it seems
You began to feel outclassed
Years later felt that you missed many dreams
