Childhood.

Andrea Jane aged 2, in butterfly dress designed by her grandmother Florence Inniss. Much love to my nan now in Heaven. (I still have Rosie!) :)


Things were simple then ...
 
Looking back to childhood
 
A sparkle in my eye
 
I clutched my teddy
 
And rosie was my doll
 
As the years flew by
 
 
I cried when Teddy fell apart
 
A new one could not replace him
 
not even restuffing
 
nor candy or a chocolate muffin.
 
Those things were not the same.
 
I felt somehow to blame.
 
 
Looking back I see why now
 
I had to let go
 
But I loved him
 
I'd not forgotten
 
The times we played together
 
Ted was my friend
 
I'd "love" him to the end
 
 
Looking back to childhood
 
Things were simple then
 
Mum, dad, siblings and friends
 
Grandma, grandad, aunts, uncles
 
cousins, dog, cat, birds and fish
 
school, home, dinner
 
a homemade dish
 
birthdays, presents, parties
 
Church on sundays,
 
sunday best
 
I miss those days of childhood
 
Things were perfect then.
 
(c) 24th Feb 2010 Andrea Jane Mary Williams
