    A long time ago
    there was a flow
    so gentle and mild
    shares of laughter
    even a smile

    once before like
    yesterday
    it was cool
    all new too
    but today not
    the same
    there are much to claim
    some even shame

    theirs no blame
    but someone calling names
    not like long ago
    when there was a deep core
    we floss and dance
    time has change
    the old worth is done
    bags pack
    not like it once was
    so time to move from
    kin and your cuz
    leaving behind an emotion
    letting go turning the key
    it's time da feelings be free'd

    just not like once was
    when we played games
    we even stood out in the rain
    we sang and sang
    from sun up to sun down
    never once did we clown
    now frowns cast
    love dim
    stolen friend and
    turn away kin
    the battle become
    a journey of the past
    old ways come to pass
    drop hopes
    lost soul
    yeap it's time to roll

    it's cold outside looking in
    lonely heart no more friend
    time has come
    of what once was .

    feeling the emotion
    some what sad
    it is deep,
    gently as you speak
    from your soul
    the time
    that was
    now is the past
    delicately
    i feel the words compose
    about the time
    that what was once
    much love
    Peace
