Reminiscing, back to my youth And the lifestyle…of the day I get such a nostalgic yearning For that time so far away... A time when things were simple And days didn’t pass so…. Fast People then, seemed so genuine From a good mold, they were cast Transportation was a necessity We used it with common sense Not too pretentious, or flashy Or causing a great expense... School was a place for learning Meeting friends, having fun Not a place where you’d worry If your classmate was toting a gun Families enjoyed things together Each one …taking care of the other Well disciplined and caring… And respecting, Father and Mother Being taught as a young child… To Love and have reverence for God To keep the "Ten Commandments" Not to kill, rob or commit fraud Time back then, moved much slower We enjoyed things, in a quieter way We appreciated, not taking for granted Lifes gifts, we were given&day to day Yet, everything must move on… "Technology" is the word of the Day I hope when this generation looks back They will have good things to say..... But for me, there won’t be a time Like those years…...way back when Yet, I give thanks that I can recall Those memories again and again! ©Judith Johnson Kypta 2004 Used With Permission All Rights Reserved By Author Website Website Newsletter Mail Read more of Judith’s work at: An Hour With You Quilts Of Love FaithWriters
