I like to sort through my old pictures It's good to see how we looked back then Sometimes I wonder just how it would feel To live those days all over again The years just keep on flying by As my body gets older and weak But in my heart I'm young and strong And memories of those times I seek Playing tag and hopscotch, jumping rope And swinging in an old tire swing Floating higher and higher over the creek Never worrying about anything The whole family gathered around the table To eat a meal all prepared from scratch Cooked and baked in an old coal stove Foods that microwaves just can't match Holidays were always special events We loved it when family came to call The adults all talked about "their" old times And the kids loved to listen to it all It's nice to remember those long ago times But I wouldn't relive them if I could The past is in my heart where it belongs So I'll just pass on that second childhood Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© June 11, 2007 All Rights Reserved share
