Only Memories Left - Poem by jim foulk

Searching my youth of another day
of time that went away
back in the old home town
with family and friends, brings a frown.

To be home again
of my search I begin
the places I remember are gone now
to progress they have bowed.

So many changes in the city
every thing gone, oh it's a pity
my youth was here for many years
to see how it's changed brings tears.

It's true you can't go home again
to the place it all began
memories is all I have left
to my heart the memories have cleft
