    Sometimes I laugh
    Sometimes I cry
    Sometimes I dream
    Of days gone by

    Life was hard, each day we learned
    We never wanted what we hadn’t earned
    A handshake at the bank was the only must
    Lives were built on faith and trust

    Friday night dances at the school’s old gym
    Pledge of Allegiance and a morning hymn
    In the Spring, caterpillars all over the trees
    Stop at the candy store for jujubes

    Pinball machines and wiffle balls
    Growing to serve, duty calls
    Decorating the car for the football game
    Jumping in leaves when Autumn came

    Watch a parade on Decoration Day
    Visit the grave, a prayer we’d say
    Meet at the diner after class
    On Christmas Eve, go to Midnight Mass

    Play in the street until well after dark
    Climbing trees at the local park
    Baking potatoes on an open fire
    Riding a bike after patching a tire

    Delivering newspapers in all kinds of weather
    Put a nail in a bat to hold it together
    Counting stars while lying in the grass
    Standing under a pavilion until the rain would pass

    Sometimes I laugh
    Sometimes I cry
    Sometimes I dream
    Of days gone by.

    We always think back to the old days. I liked what you had to say by the way.

    The world has changed so much since I was a teenager. I don't know that things will ever be the same again.

    Nothing we can do so just sit back relax and drink what ever beverage you have. Try and enjoy your golden years as best you can.

    I don't believe they will at least in my life time.

    I believe Covid-19 will out live me, and I don't plan on dying anytime soon. Of course we never do! 😉

    Thanks, I knew the author's name. I was chiding the OP, who "borrowed" the poem without credit.

    I didn't think for a second he was making it his own.

    I liked what it said, don't care who the author was, doesn't matter it was excellent.

    Same author of the poem he put in his profile! If anyone bothered to look. I assume it is his favourite.

    Andy what anyone thinks doesn't really matter if you want to go there.

    Keep in mind everyone is allowed to have a different opinion. Rather people agree or don't agree.
