Memories, light the corners of my mind 
Misty watercolor memories of the way we were. 
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind 
smiles we give to one another 
for the way we were. 
Can it be that it was all so simple then 
or has time rewritten every line? 
If we had the chance to do it all again 
tell me would we? Could we?
