Was I ever little?
Of course I was, but where is the proof?

I mean, if I ever have to prove it
all the evidence is disappearing

Now that my mother and father are gone
only my brother remembers me little. . .

And my sister, but then
they were little too.

So nobody really remembers
like I am wishing

Someone would remember me.
How my ears stuck out a little

And my eyes smiled.
I have a black and white image of myself

In the backyard by the pony's fence
in baggy pants and a jacket.

Not a memory. It's just a photo.
But I was that little.

Sandy, our Shetland pony
is hanging his head over the fence.

A lot has happened since then.
But I wish I could remember what was happening then

When I was little and
my eyes were smiling.
