Have You Ever Felt Nostalgic - Poem by Francis Duggan

Have you ever felt nostalgic for your old homeplace
Though nowadays there your's would be a stranger's face
And despite years of absence the memories remain
Of places and faces you will not see again
You've not been in the hometown for many a day
Though good memories of what was through four decades with you does stay
Those you went to school with like you are now showing time's decay
Time does not wait for anyone as some like to say
Since your younger years in the far away town
The hard roads of life you have been up and down
Time and distance has you far from where your life's journey began
But your fond memories of what was the decades do span
Far from your old hometown your best days long gone
And your biological clock keeps ticking on and on.
