via Daily Prompt: Missing

The stories shared by my

grandmother of her gleeful younger days

always made me comprehend

the missing element compared

to the present,

What would it be,

the simplicity that was evident

in their life ,perhaps

or the empathy they have felt

for their fellow beings,

may be the leisure they

were able to afford,

or was it their easy bonding

with the nature,

may be their generous soul

or possibly their profundity

of life?
