Remembering When

I remember when jumping rope was so much fun.
It didn't leave me breathless way back then.
Hours with friends singing jump rope songs.
Repeating rhymes as we jumped again and again.

I remember when time didn't matter as much.
Is it me or is time going faster these days?
It's not like I've a lot of activities to do,
But time just gets away, leaving me in a daze.

    Very nice poem, Connie, very nostalgic! I enjoyed reading this one. You might enjoy my poem titled, "A Kid At Heart". It has a similar theme to this. Please, read it sometime. Also, thank you for your kind comments on my poem "Serenity". It really means a lot!

    Well, I've posted 2 poems about time.... "Time Goes Marching On" and "Time Does Not Stand Still." At this stage in my life I'm certain it broke into a run.... Nice work here.... I loved it.... Jake

    My feelings today are very similar to yours. I don't run as fast or do as many push-ups as I used to do years ago. You have a very nice write here.
