Yet memories of days gone by, will always remain within my heart.
Unaware you’d leave so soon, we should have spent those days more wisely.
I held your hand, while taking unsure steps; falling down, I’d pick you up again.
Rebellious days through childhood and youth, my love did not depart.
Unaware you’d leave so soon, We would have spent the days more wisely.

NOTE: The original recipe also had a 1/4 c. of shredded Mozzarella (I didn't have any so I omitted).
I made only a half a recipe -- it is just the two of us and we licked our plates! Be sure that you use a skillet that can go into the oven.
