A SIMPLE PLACE IN TIME

A Simple Place in Time

 

There was a time ~ Not long ago

Life was simple ~ Pace was slow.

 

Working father's ~  In their place

Mothers' home ~ Was full of grace.

 

She was there ~ To fill their cup

Teach them manners ~ Bring them up.

 

Kids were spanked ~ When they did wrong

Families sang ~ A different song.

 

Youth were taught ~ the golden rule

In the church ~ And in the school.

 

A time we knew ~ Our neighbors' name

Country folk ~ Down wooded lane.

 

There was a wrong ~ There was a right

Honest people ~ Didn't fight.

 

T.V. stations ~ Off a ten

Local news ~ Came on back then.

 

No C.D.s ~ And no Ipods

Just radios ~ And fishin rods.

 

No laptops ~ And no cell phones

Just happy families ~ Time alone.

 

The days of old ~ Have gone away

And men don't take ~ The time to pray.

 

War is raging ~ Hear the cries

Overseas ~ A young man dies.

 

Lots of crime ~ Out in the street

Trust is gone ~ In those we meet.

 

World is angry ~ People swear

Sin is found ~ Most everywhere.

 

There was a day ~ We knew no woe

But now our prisons ~ Overflow.

 

Life goes on ~ The pace is fast

The days of old ~ Will never last.

 

Unborn children ~ Silent cry

Laws are made ~ Why must they die.

 

Times are changing ~ Vows are too

Jack and John ~ Now say, "I do."

 

Bible sits ~ Upon the shelf

Every man ~ Is for himself.

 

Dust has gathered ~ On the Word

Book of God ~ Has gone unheard.

 

How I miss ~ So long ago

Life was simple ~ Pace was slow.
