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 less we remember.

Those memories

now but flickering embers.
