Nostalgia (emotion challenge)

Take me back
to promises made on the cold concrete floor
of the house you left
so gladly.

Take me back
to fairies in the garden
and all the pretty deceptions
we believed with all our hearts.

I’m losing the memories
of years spent in blissful innocence;

Growing up,
apart and away.

Take my hand
and lead me gently
back to yesteryear.
