Remember the person you were back then
Remember those long nights you spent trying to make a sentence constructive,

That dictionary you read over and over again to improve your vocabulary and grammar,
The careless statements you made to see what impact they had,
That puppy you always talked to and they all thought you was crazy,
Those tears you shed when your little ‘kitty’ went missing,

The sleepless nights…
