I Remember When by Bonnie Zieman

I believed I would live forever

I thought there would always be time

I thought I could eat whatever I wanted

I thought I could burn the candle at both ends

I thought aches and pains were the domaine of the elderly

I thought cancer was just a word with which I would never have to concern myself

I thought life would always be an upward spiral

I thought I would always be loved and protected by my parents
