Light of Youth

This one captures the innocence of my youth.  Written when I was fifteen.

We walked by the shore
The sea roared high
Great waves.
Defying the sea
We ran on the beach
Fell into the cold, cold depths.

We laughed at the water
The winds blew at our hair
We laughed with the wind
Then we sat
And sang to the sky.

Our laughter still rings out

The time passed by
Soon the rain fell
We ran for shelter
And spoke for awhile
Thought over times of old.

Our happy eyes -
I saw the light of youth that day.
We've got memories now -
We may cry tomorrow
But it's laughter today.
