When You Think of Me

Accidental Poet


In your rear-view mirror

Do you see me there?

In your younger days

With that smile you wear


When you lived on the East Coast

Back in the day

In Scituate, Massachusetts

Is it calling you today?


You must have thought

I’d forgotten you long ago

But I’ll always love you

Like I told you so


I can’t help but wonder

As you review your memories

If your smile grows

When you think of me
