Reminiscent (Co-written with Rose)

I'd been waiting, not for just anyone
I'd know by the way my smile gave away
my happiness, and so it was trivial to time
or day that he should be the one to be creative
with my smiles that I so gave up willingly to
the boy with the blue eyes, the one to take my heart.

This is the place we met as young kids  
An old playground that seemed to be everything at that age    
I can still imagine it in my head, you blowing dandelions into the air    
Standing there with your blond hair and white dress  
Me being so fascinated, I couldn’t help but get drawn in    
Day after day we played, with everyday meeting with you blowing another dandelion into the air    
The thought still makes me smile  

From sand pits to swings we'd play  
Into his blue eyes I'd stare  
giggle and share our time together  
but there'd be a time to close this chapter  
this summer's eve as the nights closed in  
I withdrew  
watched from afar my blue eyed boy  
till he stopped searching  
the passing of time seemed irrelevant  
But each week he'd return  
The playground unused  
sand to soil to grass  
the swings grating against un oiled parts  
as I still watched from afar  

Many years have passed, yet I couldn’t get that girl out of my mind  
Thinking whatever happen to my old friend?  
I decided to start going back to that park  
To see if maybe she brought her kids around to play  
Thinking we could have some old laughs or something  
Though that would be a long shot, after all  
Still, there was something about that girl that called out to me  
So came the day I finally found her again, with a dandelion in hand  
Having me in shock, as she hadn't aged a bit  
My old friend looked at me and asked “want to play?
