 Elsie`s Poetry



How come that all the songs of yesteryear
Seem to bring my past back so very near,
Back to the time of those carefree days
Many memories of which my mind replays.

They make me yearn for my long lost youth
When things were simple and that`s the truth,
No worries just long hot summer days
When Beetle mania was certainly the craze.

I know where I was when I hear a song
And to be back there my heart does long,
The words of a song makes my heart beat fast
As the feelings I felt come back from the past.

Love songs were plentiful way back then
I wish I could replay my life over again,
To feel those feelings just one more time
Tell me would that really be such a crime.

The words of a song can form a tear in my eye
And my heart for the past does silently cry,
Youth and romance seem to go hand in hand
I say this because I think you will understand.

I get lost in my music if only for a while
It brings me sadness but also a smile,
I`m back in my past where I long to be
Young, happy and totally carefree.
