CHILDREN WERE WE
Echoes in time, treasured sounds dreamed in my mind,
From a lifetime ago in a place from the past, a town.
Walking in the streets, a simple time remembered,
Shadows, ghosts of friends thought of once in a while.
Warm Summers with not a care in the world for us,
Young were we as if today might be yesterday.
With the wind, the years are swept away into today,
The voice of a woman, a girl brought from a distant day.
Children were we just a moment ago, only a moment ago,
From a man to a woman again I might know, images of children,
Thoughts of a place sometimes traveled in my mind alone.
