It was Spring of ’79
I was 10 years old standing in the street where I lived
some mates and I looked down the street and the Spring Winds flew in at us.
It was the most magical feeling I’d ever had,
a real sense of freedom and excitement hit me!!
It was exhilarating
The world seemed to stop!
But in a really really good way
I felt safe and strong, and that wind rushed through me
I dunno I can’t quite put into words the feeling
but I often recall this memory when I’m feeling not so great,
and it lifts my spirits every time,
it’s like I have all my ancestors with me
they got my back!
