All the days gone by
Makes me want to cry..

I think back at times
I'd listen to the soft chimes..

The wind had blown
My children were grown..

Time passed on
Days were gone..

My hair grayed
Life had frayed..

The yard had rough edges
With over grown hedges..

Happy times though
Will come and go..

Love is still here
I can feel it near..

With many warm looks
And well written books..

Always loved what I do
Even if my time flew..

Pages of my life have been turned
As well as many candles burned..

I'd rewrite my days
Never changing any of the ways..

All the warm smiles
Across the miles..

And given the chance
I'd take the same old dance..
