Take me back,

To the days of old,

To the times,

When life was simpler.


Take me back,

To those happy days,

When little things brought,

A smile on my face. 


Take me back,

To the those moments,

That now remain,

Only as memories.


Take me back,

That I may live them,

All over again,

Before they fade into oblivion.


Please take me back,

If you can.

Or can I just,

Turn back time?

I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge and the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) . I’m trying to weave poems around unusual words or words from other languages that are just beautiful.
