Oops a day late for this one, but I was on holiday and only back yesterday so forgive me!
A Summer Memory
We all dressed up, and ready to go
a real treat for us all to go out
On the bus and then bobbing on the ferry
Across to Southsea.
Sunshine, the smell of sea in the air.
Playing on the shore, picking up pebbles and shells
Going to a pink restaurant
having fish and chips by the sea.
No sauce, no garlic
just fish and chips and mushy peas.
ice cream for afters
A day out indeed.
I suspect we were naughty, and played up
I suspect that we moaned
but looking back now
I wish I’d realised how precious
time was with you
I want to go back to that pink restaurant.
