Times I Remember


I remember days gone by
from way back in my past,
when everything we had to buy
was really made to last.

Trust, respect and courtesy
were taught in every school,
and swearing in the street
considered anything but cool.

safe for children in the street
with policeman on their beat,
and families had set meal times
when they all sat down to eat.

Marriage used to be for life
your vows had left no doubt,
divorce was for special cases
and was not an easy way out.

People dressed much smarter
and walked about with pride,
no-one looking like a tramp
would dare to go outside.

These days things are so different
people are ruled by machines,
but the times I remember best
are the wonderful days of my teens.
