'Turning Back Time'


I was born an old soul, a step out of time,
     And antiques or just old things come to me;
Vintage clothing and jewellery are a passion,
            I love to wander the antique shops.

A fancy cup with a small chip does not bother me,
      A welcome addition to my window ledge;
The dust and cobwebs in the depths of the shops,
              Enthrall me to poke around in boxes.

Each old item whatever it may be is a treasure,
      These old things take me back in time;
Back to an era that I feel is where I really belong,
                I love to turn back the pages of time.

I like to set my dining table with mismatched dishes,
     Found in junk and antique shops, all different;
Beautiful colors and designs, hand painted flowers,
                 A little crack does not change the beauty.
