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 awhile.
Warm Summer’s 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.
