look back on the days of yesterday.


of nine years old.

Sweet stories to be told.


remember the days of yesteryear.

Advice I hold dear.

Not afraid to shead a tear.

So free,

able to be me.

Hide n' seek,

Going to the beach;

Patty cake;

Fish'n at the lake;

Double dutch;

N' Mc Donalds for lunch;

Fire flies;

N' rainbows in the sky;

Feeding the ducks;

The ice-cream truck;


Family pic-nics.

All these things I hold dear from my life of yesteryear.

It's refreshing to have some embrace the past instead of disguarding it. I find I learn more by holding onto it and not forgetting what I've gone through. That way I don't have to suffer the same consequences over and over. Thank you for sharing this write and showing that there's nothing wrong with reflecting.

A very upbeat poem. I must admit I don't read many of these types but I think you hit very well on the nostailgia of childhood. The only thing I do not remember doing myself is double dutch. Very well written. Good job.
