Used to be I was Home
Used to be there was laughter
Used to be homemade bread
Used to be a daughter.

Now the days are empty
I sit here all alone
Hope some will remember what Used To Be!

I came across this old abandoned farm house east of Regina just off Highway 16 East. The air of old memories seemed so very strong.

    A terrific shot Leslie. I thought it was an old church??? I like your little poem too.

  • I thought so as well but everything was set up as far as I could see to be lived in as a home. So either I just plain wrong or times at htat point made it used as both. Thanks for your comments Al. :>)) Leslie
