On a break from work alone one day,
I closed my eyes and felt the suns rays.
The prodigal sun shone down on my face
Through the mild windy weather weve had since December.
I lay on the grass
I thought of old faces of the past
Younger years spent in school
On hot sunny mornings in the classroom.
Its ten years ago I remember the days
Of lessons and daydreams
From the first of September.
I loved my youth.
Oh how I loved my youth
