Summers were brighter
when I was younger.
The days and nights
seemed much longer.
School holidays
were such a thrill
with so much
time left to fill.
Our days were
spent at the beach
where a pretty girl
was always in reach.
The bravado of youth
was always on show.
All dressed up
and somewhere to go.
Time passes
without pause
and punishes us
now without cause.
The older we get
the more we remember.
Those memories
now but flickering embers.
