Things As They Once Were©

Footloose and fancy free is how all things use to be

Today there is no time to stop by and say hi

We barely remember where we came from

because all that we once knew has changed

Trees, cars, houses, buildings, parks and people

It’s hard to know who’s who and what’s what

I so long for a time when neighbors would just drop by

When our doors remained open

And the corner store owner knew you by name

And kept all your favorites waiting just for you each day

These are things as they once were

Oh how nice it would be if they could just be once more
