One Day I'll Surely Leave You


I see you from a distance,
Sweet memories close to heart,
One day I'll surely leave you,
In death we'll surely part.

I look down on the village school,
Where I spent happy days,
The memories are so clear now,
In oh so many ways.

I see them walking up the hill,
Those friends now in the past,
I hear the sounds of laughter,
How time has moved so fast.

Where are those many faces,
Of pals that I once knew?
Do they still remember,
As I so often do?

So many men have walked this way,
And so will many more,
One day I'll surely leave you,
This Wales that I adore.

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
