Dear Friends And Good People
Dear friends and good people we may never more see
But they remain with us in our memory
In our thoughts they remain young as the friends we did know
The friends we grew up with many decades ago.
Dear friends of our young years from us far away
Some with the departed forever now lay
In deceased people's ground in Nature's earth and clay
They live in our minds we recall them today.
The clock on our lives it is ticking on fast
As we try to cling on to our friends of the past
To the father of time as we age we do bow
But we only can live in the here and the now.
Dear friends of the past you we often recall
In our thoughts you are young you have not aged at all
In our thoughts you've not aged since we left our beloved Homeland shore
Though on the streets of the Hometown we may meet never more.
