#PoeticThursday . . . I Slipped Into The Past




I slipped into the past again
Dug out some pictures of old
Faded so with age they are
But so many stories they told

Oh, look at the old vehicles
Don’t they give you chills?
A bearded gentleman and his tiny wife
A life without luxury and frills

If only we could turn back the clocks
Sit down with them and talk
So many wonderful things they’d say
So many memories unlocked

One by one I looked at pictures
Some were family some were friends
They wore a different style of clothes
A different way of life and trends

Some were taken so long ago
Fifty years or more it was
Another lifetime, another world
Kind of gives you reason to pause

And then I put the pictures back
Into the box in which they are kept
Makes me smile a bit in reverence
For a life of happiness and tears unwept

I wonder as I put them all away
If someone will always care
Because it’s important to generations
That old pictures to be kept to share!
