I was dreaming of a time so long ago.
And this poem came up today while I looked at a neighbors flower I shot this summer. I hope you like them.
As snow flakes fall I think of you your memory never fades.
You come to me as if your here your memory still lives on.
And now as I think back to times when we were very young.
They seem like yesterday.
But these old and withered hands tells me that ain’t so.
We road together you and I with horse and buggy down this street.
And lady’s had umbrellas as they strolled about.
That was before the airplane and the auto was brand new.
And as I look out on this street where you held hands with me.
I think oh my how life has changed from years and years ago.
A time when just a little smile meant so much to us.
A kiss was the final touch on a thing called love.
As snow flakes fall I think of you and all the years between.
My memory’s not what it use to be but you are still so clear.
A man in all your shining youth you were my mighty knight.
You caught my eye on our first hello you were so very charming.
And as I hoped you asked me out to the local dance.
The days were different way back then a touch was all it took.
And sparks did fly so long ago.
When lady’s wore satin hat’s and men were dressed in black.
As snow flakes fall before my eyes your there like yesterday.
And oh the memory’s that you bring I blush and bow my eyes.
Of that first kiss beneath a tree when I was just sixteen
And I did melt into your arms when you asked me to be yours.
That was a time when on your knees you said those words to me.
And dreams come true to those that pray and wish up on a star.
That was a time so long ago but seems like yesterday.
And as I think about that time you come to me so clear.
Like it was only yesterday you said I love you June.
As snow flakes fall before my eyes I wipe away the tears.
And wish that you were here.
