Nostalgia strikes us now and then

Nostalgia strikes us now and then,
The same for women as for men;
The "good old days," when we were young,
The fun recalled, the sweet songs sung.

In memory our youthful dreams
Were innocent, or so it seems.
Our parents taught us right from wrong,
How we'd succeed, and get along.

The life we lived so long ago,
Before we learned what we now know,
Sometimes was hard, and never tame,
Nostalgia's just a pleasant game.

  1. Glad to run across your blog. Ah, nostalgia. I don't really share it with anyone, I just feel it. Instead of being able to think back about the "good old days," I experience emotions from those times. I have long believed that nostalgic moments are a reflection of the intense emotions that one experiences as one was an adolescent, with emotions in the development stage.
