I Bet Someone Will

I wish I could go back a ways in time
To a time life seemed to move slow
A time instead of watching television
We enjoyed watching our flowers grow.
A time neighbors would be smiling
And saying hello as they walked by
A time going barefooted was fun to do
Even if sand spurs often made us cry.
A time cars were few and far between
Only a few of us had a phone in our home
Money for a movie was hard to come by
Those good old days sadly are now gone.
A thought just popped into my mind
I wonder if someone in the future will say
They wish they could travel back in time
To this time we are living in today?

I bet someone will.....
