Not a Kid Anymore


I think about the time 

My siblings and I ran outside to play

Not knowing it would end someday 


I think about the time 

My dad and I built a fort 

Not knowing that the time was short 


I think about the time 

My grandma set a place for herself and me 

Not knowing it would be my last tea party 


I loved these activities 

But they all came to an end 

Because I no longer wanted to play or pretend 


I now appreciate those simple moments of being a kid 

To run, laugh, and play 

But now I dream of having my own kids someday
