Thanks For The Memories - Poem by Francis Duggan

The young women of my prime years are ageing on the Internet pictures of some of them i do see
On Millstreet Town's World renowned web site that brings back old memories to me
Breda Tarrant, Catherine Moore and Eileen Murphy may be many years past their prime
But they have been wearing their years well and have not been bowing to old father time
Some photographs stir up old memories and return us to what used to be
And though the past it has gone forever like last month's water to the sea
Fond memories do last a life time and never seem to fade away
It has been twenty years since i have seen them and in twenty years many a day
Yet time does not wait for anybody and the clock on our lives it ticks on
And in twenty years are sixty Seasons but how fast those Seasons have gone
But they have been wearing their years well and them in their photos i did recognize
And photos of some people you did know to old and happy memories can give rise,
Yes they have been wearing their years well and fond memories of what was do remain
Breda Tarrant, Catherine Moore and Eileen Murphy to you thanks for the memories again.
