Childhood Faded Away

Poem By jim foulk

Childhood Faded away,
to a far away land,
simple, so simple were we,
Days of Play,
Going our Way,
Having fun, no care,
for another day,
time for us stood still,
playing king of the hill
Childhood Faded away
thinking of another day,
summer time was fine,
when friends were kind,
swiming holes were filled,
our hearts were thrilled
Childhood Faded Away
to a time that makes me sway
many years have passed away,
since childhood faded to another day,
Childhood Faded to places,
UNKNOWN TO US
floating somewhere in time.

What a fine, nostalgic piece. Thank you for sharing your wonderfujl memories with your readers. What you have put into a poem, can never truly fade away. Kindest regards, Sandra
Yes, childhood faded and wonder some days where did it all go. I think too sometimes of all the things we use to do that was simply fun and so different than it is today. Seems sometimes like only yesterday-where did the time go. I loved reading this for it took me back to times that were more happy than they are today.
