Remember The Days

Remember the days
Of a manicured lawn
Bright shiny brickwork
Happy new home
Rosy cheeked bairns
Chasing around
Sprightly young pup
Pawing the ground
Joy and adventure
Play filled nights
Fun in the sun
Dimming the lights?

Tangled and worn
Nothing but weeds
Decaying mortar
A roof that leaks
Silence and peace
No giggling now
Slow canine walk
An ageing howl
Settled routine
Blurs in the haze
Dimming the lights
Remember the days?
