Poem: Remember When

How do you remember
All the things we’ve been
Reminded of the glory
And the greatness we’ve within
What has happened to us?
Where has the time all gone?
Faded films and photographs
And memories carry on
Do you remember when
All was new and gold
Though it seemed a long time ago
We did not grow old
Happiness we remember
Simple, clean, and pure
A legacy to last forever
A spirit to endure
Flame of hope will flicker
Though we kept it strong
It made a light that shines
Its brightness did burn long
These times, how they have changed us
And little looks as it did before
Some memories we preserved
Of things that are no more
All that once was
And may not be again
It still lives on, quietly
When we remember when
