Of life’s simplistic interludes,
When dreams were fresh as lavender
As sunlight burns the morning dew.
Silly giggles way back thenWere all the sport we ever sought,
No responsibilities could
Trump the task of levity.
And weren’t we happy with our lot?Time and trial our last concerns.
Foresight was for other fools
To dole and dither fitfully.
Sad to lose the youthful verveThat spawned so many memories, but
Time can be a spiteful mistress
If allowed to have her way.
Now in twilight do I find
The subtle nuance of her gift.
The looking back rekindles joy that
Silly giggles gave us then.
