i remember well the fields we have outgrown
when we first watched in awe the ball clearing the road
we were homegrown champs of those worn end zones
back when the seasons changed the shapes we used to throw
i have visited the hills we used to slide
those we defended with our frozen fists and pride
where the bravest neighbors would stand and ride
those shoots have all grown over with time
do you remember now the bridge we took to raise?
so we could cross and walk for miles to where you stayed?
fixing dumpster scraps with stolen nails all day...
well, the river rose and washed it all away
