When I am old
Will I still be able to take my body
To the places my mind takes me now?
Running over mountains,
Down valleys and through lush forests.
The future is always sunny;
Full of energetic promise and
Now is beautiful;
Filled with football
And homework, and meandering Monopoly.
I treasure every second.
I hope that,
When the present is memories,
My body is as able as my mind is willing.
