“He’s Someone I Should Know”

Who is that freckle-faced, red-headed kid,

Holding a crawdad and snake?

Is he someone I know?

 

As I look through my pictures I wonder,

Am I still that fun loving boy?

Where did time go?

 

That young lad was in love with the world,

Curiosity was his name,

He wanted to discover everything,

 

From the tops of trees or on bended knee,

He ruled his world,

For awhile he was king,

 

Where is the young man who loved sports?

It didn’t matter which one it was,

He always gave one hundred percent,

 

I can see his smiling face in my yearbook,

He enjoyed his high school years,

But those days came and went,

 

Where is the young man who chased the girls?

He was so excited,

Learning what made them tick,

 

He found out he was not so smart,

Finding love was much easier,

Than working to make it stick,

 

Where is the dad who took great joy?

Seeing his children blossom,

They grew fast over the years,

 

They’re all gone and far away,

But I still remember,

As I brush away my tears,

 

Now as I sift through my pictures,

There’s one I didn’t see,

There’s the man I knew,

 

I have a lifetime of things I’ve done,

Frozen moments in pictures,

My, how those years flew!
