Childhood Reflections

I recall life’s yesteryears
of a time not long ago
of sunny, backyard barbecues
hopping Scotch
and jumping rope

cbl-clipart-childhood-autumnMemories of an innocence
not so far away
Time that’s grown so distant
now obscure,
forgotten yesterdays

Simple recollections
of childhood’s golden time
sweet sorrow, its departure
seeking tracks of youth,
now so difficult to find

In the blink of an eye
and the setting of the sun
we search our soul’s foundation
for time,
sweet precious time

For youth, now out of reachcbl-child
mere memories in our mind
reflections of a childhood
and the legacies
we’ve left behind.
