My Long Agos - Poem by Stanley Cooper

How I love to reminisce
Of youth-filled days and times I miss
Romantic songs I often sung
Long ago when I was young

Sentimental jazz and blues
Take me on a memory cruise
I travel back to time long past
When all good things, I knew, would last

Close friendships with my teen-age pals
Exciting moments with teen-age gals
They bring to mind my youthful joy
My carefree-ness when just a boy

My roaring twenties, when more mature
Still retains their same allure
These strains I hear just seem to flow
As I return to my long-ago

Back I sail to times and places
To memories of faded faces
Faces I still long to see
The music brings them back to me
