hat happened to those carefree days
When I lived fancy free?
A moment passed and so did they,
Consigned to memory.
What happened to the vestal thrill
Of summertime romance?
A moment passed and it moved on
Without a backward glance.
What happened to my precious child
Who promised not to grow?
A moment passed and she was gone
With time's unending flow.
What happened to my zeal for life
Acquired along the way?
A moment passed but now it's back
To celebrate today.
