Treasure Island

Francis Duggan


Your Friends Over There


You left them when you left for to live elsewhere
And now they are only your friends over there
The friends over there you may never more see
As images fading from your memory
Upon your life's journey old friendships do fade
And you've changed as a person and new friendships you've made
And though they retain a small place in your heart
In time and in distance from them you've grown apart
You've not seen them for more than two decades and in that many a day
And since then you've changed as a person and so too have they
And they too have forged new friendships and in life have moved on
And though the past we remember the past it has gone
Like them to the father of time you do bow
And you only can live in the here and the now.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
