Before the war.

Take me back to the days where

we sat by the evening light, 

and listened to timeless tales,

about conquests of fearless men. 

Take me back to the days when

we ran barefooted,

trudging along baked red earth,

as we sang songs of our innocence.

Take me back to the days when

we danced with a carefree spirit,

and wondered when,

we would ever touch the skies.

Take me back to the days that

we stood by the shorelines,

and watched the waves,

wash away our fears.    

Take me back to the days,

just before the war,

when I was a happy child.
