The Cycle Of Friendship (Part 1/3)



When I was a child, 
I had a lot of friends
Knew no enemies and what that meant

Acquaintance 
Was a foreign word, omen
Too big for my vocabulary

In the parks, on the playgrounds
We played cow boys and Indians, 
Left  life's erratic dirt on our cloths a' saw nothing of it

Just like hide and seek, 
Monopoly and 
Snakes and ladders

Ariel wash, luminous  
Tumbled dried and kept as clean
The good old days

  13. I love this "Ariel wash, luminous" incredible line
