Swinging again, creaking from wind
Years and pounds later I think it might bend
Jumping off, thankful groundís covered with sand
Indentation with time makes it easy to land.
Distinctly remember mom calling for dinner
Pay no attention, my body feels limber
Climbing so high I think I should yell ďtimber,Ē
Dealing with blue sky and heavenly wind-burn.
At the peak of my swing I see over the fence
Yellow leaves cover ground, the compound does a dance
All my years on the swing Iíve seen nothing like this
Perhaps body growth now gave length for this chance.
Night continues plight, mom and dad start to worry
Eyes get bad with time, they reach phone in a hurry
Call Mr. James, the old neighbor, to see if he sees me
Heís blind all the same but insists he hears creaking.
I know that itís time, my legs cease to pump
Memories water the eyes and my throat feels a lump
Those days creep upon me, heart repeatedly thumps
Jump off, making memories with all the new bumps
