I Reminisce, I Miss

I reminisce, I miss....
The smell of fresh home baked cookies,
today they come from a box of stale goodies.
Please and thank you,
now very seldom heard.
When kids were kids just having fun,
not tied to a computer so they cannot run.
Life was work hard with simple things,
like flowers you would bring.
The days of old are long gone,
never to return.
The ones I loved,
the ones that loved me are all gone.
I reminisce, I miss....

This is very moving, especially the last three lines. It makes me think of people I loved and who loved me back who are gone, and this rugs at my heart strings. Congratulations on your POTD Paula!

Yes, I can see you had a good time with this one, too. I have a feeling this will be a difficult contest to judge. I mean, who can rank other people's fond memories? Right?
