Pink and Blue isn’t just for babies.
Its the color of childhood.
The color of maybes.
Maybe ill be a kid forever!
Maybe ill ride the Ferris wheel!
Maybe daddy will ride with me!
Oh, how simple it used to feel.
When my biggest decision was which ride to ride…
at the local county fair.
And we’d go watch shows together…
before you were stuck in a chair.
I’m whisked away to a time…
when I didn’t have the addiction.
To bleed away my worries
because I couldn’t fix them.
Before the darkness set in.
The struggle that came with it.
When loving life was easier.
Now everything is so different.
Before you got sick and left.
Before my heart was shattered.
Before he became the voice in my head,
that tells me I don’t matter.
When you were the only man I needed.
And my friend.
Childhood was so beautiful,
before it had to……….
The last bite goes down bittersweet.
I wipe my face with my sleeve.
As long as I have these memories,
Its like my childhood didn’t leave.
So i’ll eat my cotton candy icecream.
Be your little girl at the fair.
Before the world stole her.
And filled her with despair.
