Sadly For Me
My childhood home is gone
All my old friends have moved away
Moved to where I wish I knew
They'll always remain in my memory
Along with those times we spent at play.
My old fishing pond is so small
I once thought it was wide and long
I suppose things seemed larger
To us when we were young
Sadly for me those days are gone.
Today I'm closing the book on my past
Giving my old memories a rest
It is time to build new memories
Hopefully ones that my children and
Grandchildren will recall as their best.
