I remember back many years ago,
when we lived on the southern coast.
Our lives were simple,
with lifes stories told...
The children played games on the front sidewalk,
while mother cooked and to father talked.
The smell of the food,permeated through the window,
with mother proudly calling us in.
Dinner time was always such a joy
when all together we sat to enjoy.
With fruits of moms labor, labor of love,
thankful we were to the creator above.
Together we stayed with simple things,
not needing much,only what love brings.
A family thankful to have each other,
our time spend together was all that mattered.
