A simpler time

In a simpler time,

when bells chimed,

and words spoken from the eyes,

meant more than a sweet voice

 

When a bird’s song brought smiles,

and people didn’t need dimes,

when love was the currency,

and easily came mercy

 

When love was true and not a game,

when immodesty wasn’t fame,

when clothes were long and pride short,

and women were more beautiful than hot

 

In a simpler time

when bells chimed,

is where I want to live,

for the rest of my life.
