The Way We Were

The Way We Were

by Shirley Securro.


The way we were

The best for sure

The times were good

and we all could

be happy and dream

reach goals it seemed

Things were pure

and we had a cure

Times were slow

in rain or snow

when people cared;

they loved and shared

The comfort of my home

it seemed

Was all that I had ever
