emily reminds me

David Campbell

 

careful donít sweep up your feet.

i might lose you for good in the vacuum bag.

you really mean a lot to me,

though i donít think iíve met you yet.

i must say goodbye.itís raining outside and the puddles come up

to my knees.

 

emily reminds me of how we all once were

before our hearts were frozen by the cold wind.

now we walk in a blur.

we have forgotten.

we must relearn.

 

you have to be gentle with me.

iím a little girl with apink book-bag.

this place is new to me.

iím an old soul in a young body.

daddy says youíre a peasant

but i donít know what that means.

 

yeah they call you a peasant but to me you are a king.

 

emily reminds me of how we all once were

before our hearts were frozen by the cold wind.

now we walk in a blur.

emily reminds me of how we all once were

before our hearts got tangled up

in the war we fight to win our pride and worth.

we have forgotten.we must relearn.

you have forgotten.you must relearn.

i have forgotten.i must relearn.
