I am you. You are me.
I watch you on the screen.
Half my age and half again
I see myself, I see you.
Running and falling
And crying and singing.
I see proof of the days when living was easy.
Bunched up curls and bring blue eyes.
You stare at the camera,
But you're really staring at me.
I laugh, I cry,
You laugh, You cry.
At least a decade separates us
But we are the same thing,
I can see you but you can't see me.
Now I can only look back and try to remember.
As you look forward, and don't mean to, but forget.


Watched some baby videos last night. It made me nostalgic.

This is great.
Ah I love watching old Disney Movies-
Peter Pan, I used to dream about him when I was younger- All I wanted was that little bit of magic on me so I would be able to fly,.

This is wonderful! It expresses exactly how I feel whenever I watch videos of a younger me! I do wonder about that girl. (I'm afraid she would hate me if she knew me.)
