Back then

I want to go back Back to when I was slim and trimmed And all I knew was fun fun fun! Back to when I had no worries and loved many stories Back to when no one told me my flaws And I had no idea I was so small and short! Back to when running a mile didnt seem like a chore I want to go back then I want to go back Back to when school wasnt a task When it hardly mattered if you read When it was like putting through the hole of a pin,a thread Back to those delicious yam porridge That got you spending with all pleasure and courage Back to those dance routines That had me feeling like I was a part of something Back to building those sand castles And driving mum crazy trying to make waffles I want to go back then

Sadly, time is on a one way street and there is no reversing. I like this one. Actually, I did a piece of my own called Topsy-turvy. I even turned it into a song: What if now was yesterday And things are the way they were then Would I be what I am today Or would I be what I was back then? Once again, great piece Iveren

What a great piece of Nostalgia. I wonder if one day you will look at today and feel a similar way about now. The further we are away, the better it seems to have been.
