I cannot remember Valley Road
Nor are there photos of this one year of my life
I can’t remember any stories ever told
I’ve been through every box of prints and slides
And taken Google streetview for a ride
But Valley Road remains a place that hides
The memories of 4 years old
I remember Michigan the year before
Could tell you stories, show you pictures
I remember the apartment from the year that followed
Down to the layout, the playground, the walk to school
But I cannot remember Valley Road
Not a word from the well
Of memories fair or foul
So is it fair to ask
What stories happened there
That we don’t tell.

Where I lived: 3 years old (Valley Road, Drexelbrook complex, Drexel Hill, PA
