take me back to forget-me-not valley,
a place where clear skies were filled
with grand tapestries of stars,
a place where acres upon acres of
lillies and blossoms danced into the night

take me back to forget-me-not valley,
a place where the white sheep
weren't too far from our reach,
a place where the ducks would gather
around the pond as we showered them in
rice and sweet hawaiian bread crumbs

take me back to forget-me-not valley,
a place where we'd dirty our knees
as we built castles out of mud, rocks, and hay,
a place where we forged flowers and branches
into our imaginary swords and armory

take me back to forget-me-not valley,
a place where our favorite waterfalls
fell, plummeted, into jagged rocks and spring,
a place where we would fall asleep to
the carpenters and bird's sweet chorus

take me back to forget-me-not valley,
a place where you were always in your raggedy overalls,
messy hair, and dirty bandaids
a place where you were always happy and free
