In Your Nostalgic Moments - Poem by Francis Duggan

Have you in your nostalgic moments felt quite close to tears
When you thought of your friends of long departed years
Some of them deceased and some showing age decay
And time ticks along as the wise one does say

The memories are with you of the far away Spring
When the birds in the park of the old town did sing
And wildflowers were blooming after recent rain
The past may be gone but old memories of it with you does remain

And the girls of your youth in the far away town
The breeze tossing their hair as they walked up and down
On the sidewalks of the street laughing as they did talk
On their way to and from the park on their summer evening walk

In the old cemetery in the town far away
Some of those you grew up with among the deceased do lay
Some are grandparents and some as single parents did remain
And like you only the memories of what was do retain

And like you some did migrate to big cities elsewhere
For to try out their luck in the big World out there
And like you reminisce on the what has been
The best of old memories remain evergreen

For many in memory only the good times do last
And in your nostalgic moments do you think of the past
To the place where you first looked on the lamp of day
In your old first home in the town far away.
