One of my favorite songs is “Somewhere Only We Know” by Keane. Beautiful song that always makes me a little wistful. 🙂  Its the inspiration for this poem.

Take my hand,

Let’s walk down a gravelly path,

Lose ourselves in thought,

Pretend for a while that we are as young as we feel.

Share secrets.

Create a few more.

We spend too much time pretending we’re adults,

As if we know what that’s supposed to be,

As though its something we shouldn’t define for ourselves.

Take my hand,

Hold my heart captive with your words…

Just for today,

Let’s forget the harsh words,

The buried hurt feelings,

Let’s leave that behind,

In favor of remembering what it feels like

To be young and in love.

Pretend
