back in time

take me back in time

to the days of years gone by

the time when i was little

the time i had faith i could fly

take me back in time

and make me believe

that Mother Earth too

was once healthy and green

take me back in time

to when his health was fine

i wish to hug my grandfather

just one last time

take me back in time

to meet Nelson Mandela.

i want to learn from Mother Teresa

and see Norma Jeane and Lady Diana.

take me back in time

witness the Beatles perform live

listen to disks of vinyl

ride a Pontiac into the night

take me back in time

before the hi tech big bang

when automobiles were luxuries

and phones weren’t must-haves.

take me back in time

to those summer vacations

that were more than expensive resorts

and were priceless family celebrations.

take me back in time.

save my Generation X soul.

which alas is forever stuck

in a millenial’s timezone.
