BEST YEARS

In my best years, I made mistakes and I still smiled, 

In my best years, I didn’t know anything and wanted to know it all, 

In my best years, I was infatuated by my many fantasies, 

In my best years, pain only reminded me of another opportunity to be happy,

In my best years, hard work and toil was better than the luxury we seemed to want, 

In my best years, I was courageous and proud of my flaws, 

In my best years, I laughed off the hurt and hate,

In my best years, no one meant anything and everything to me, 

In my best years, every day was beautiful and I didn’t know that I really did have it all.

And even though I’ve broken this chain I ask can I have another year, another glorious year?
