Reminiscence

Before I take another step forward,
I wish I could retrace the past.
I’d walk the steps when I was young
and breathe that air into my lungs.
It was cleaner then, no pollution around.
It was quieter then, no raucous sound.

I’d walk the steps when all was new
and picture the world with troubles few.
It was easier then, no doors to lock,
It was safer then, no fearful knock.
Time moved slower. Days were long.
I could understand the words in a song.

I’d walk the steps when bright-eyed hope
gave me courage that I could cope
with all the things that came my way
and would always be there every day.
It was calmer then, yet I know
that all these steps were bound to go.
