Remember when

I remember when is about some childhood memories that I can remember

I remember When

I remember when
We could get half penny sweets,
Five pence would fill a bag
for us to eat.

I remember when
we took bottles back to the shop
Ten pence we would get back,
and we thought we were rich

I remember when
we played skipping, hop scotch,
rounders, elastics too
All in the streets
with no worryies at all.

I remember when
we used to go for long bike rides
Traffic was no hassle
no worries of cars, nearly
knocking you of your bike,
and sending you flying
into the roadside bush.

I remember when
Holding a girls hand
meant nothing at all
Didn't mean you were a lesbian,
but just good friends.
Now people stop and stare
and assume, but hey
so what let them cos it doesn't
matter at all.

I remember when
Dads came home from work
and family's sat around the table
and had family time,
which carried on in the evening too.
That doesnt happen much now at all
Though I still make us eat
round the table for some family time.
I hope my son pass this on
to his family too

Things have changed oh so much,
memoreis are all we have got,
of them good times we had.
