Frozen in Time

A Poem

I’d like to go back
to being
that little guy
jumping around in the fields
with a light heart

I’d like to find my house
its stone walls
full of stories
warmed
by the sun’s rays

I’d like to see my dad’s smile
lying
in his armchair
under
the old linden tree

I’d like to climb the conifer
overlooking
the garden
watch the world
like a bird

I’d like to pick gooseberries
sitting in the grass
with my mom and sister
then prepare the jelly
in the big copper pot

I’d like to throw the ball
to my little dog
see him run at full speed
with his muzzle
up in the air

I’d like to go back to the past
freeze in time
those great moments
that today are only
wonderful memories
