"OLD FASHIONED DREAM..."


There was a time when people look at each other in the eyes
And the eyes were nothing but truth

There was a time when people used to communicate
With a genuine interest of learning about each other

There was a time when people shared mutual respect
And there were no bad or fabricated words to hurt

There was a time when people showed honorable character
And all were a model of virtue to one another

There was a time when the faces had no make up
And masks were not used to hidde feelings

There was a time when children used to run free everywhere
And could enjoy the wonders and innocence of childhood

There was a time when the beauty of a person
Was measured by his integrity as an individual

There was a time when people really cared about each other
And nobody had the risk of being neglected

There was a time when religion was peace
And nobody used religion to harm others

There was a time when people were more precious than material possessions
And nobody thought love and friendship could be bought as anything else

There was a time when we did not take for granted anything
And this way every single living being was embraced as blessing

There was a time when people knew to find happiness everywhere
And learned that we are the happiness makers if we want 

There was a time of wonderful things I miss
In nowadays' world have vanished
As a blow of a strong wind has taken them far away
To a place impossible to be reached...
Forever gone!

(Simone)
