So Many I Knew I Will Never More Meet

So many i knew i will never more meet
The most of them lay in cemeteries of the Parish of Millstreet
Whilst some from Duhallow did die far away
Far from their first home-place their last remains do lay
Our date with life's Reaper we are obliged for to keep
Some i went to school with are in their long sleep
In the flesh them i am never to meet again
And of them only good memories with me does remain
And only the memories do seem to last
Of our school going friends of the distant past
From where as a baby i grew into a man
My life journey has taken me far from where it began
Fond memories of my school going friends with me does remain
Though many of them i may not meet again.
