I was thinking of Love, and you came to mind

I was thinking of Love,and you came to mind
I have many memories I would like to rewind.
Do you remember those days I would lie in your lap?
As you doodled my ears,I would take a short nap.

I’m remembering the nights that we spent together
You would scratch my back gently,ever so tender.
As I rewind a bit more,I am seeing much fun
I’m remembering the fall,and all the raking we done.

So many leaves piled by the tree
You would cover me up till I couldn’t see.
Those are just a few of the memories I have
Let’s rewind a bit more to when I was bad.

I’m sorry for the times when I made you cry
Looking back at the past, I’m not sure I know why.
I know as a child I was stubborn, selfish, and strange
But look at me now, and how much I’ve changed.

I assume looking back, It’s hard to understand
That today I’m quite normal, I think God lent a hand.
The ending is near, I think I’ve said Enough!
I could go on forever,But ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

All joking aside, I would be up all night
If I continued this poem, and continued to write.
There’s just not enough words to express all the love
Other that the words written above.
