Days Gone By

Looking back, I can visualize so clearly the good times we use to have
Barbeques that went on for days
Laughter almost drowning out the songs we played on the old stereo
Pop's dancing, doing his thang
Momma cookin and cussing out pour Uncle George
In the end family sitting around the dinner table, telling tall tales
Pop's gotta little drunk, had to go lie down
The children running around playing hide and go seek
Their stomachs full of the great meal Momma fixed
What I remember most is all the love that could be felt
From Great Aunt Flo to the innocent baby softly snoring in his crib
To bad those days are gone
Memories never forgotten
Memories passed on
Generation to generation
Days gone by
