In my minds eye I can see,
The past that has meant so much to me,
All of my loves and dreams
Now all memories it seems!
I have lived too long perhaps,
And daily need the naps,
And dream of loves of long ago,
Now dead and in the earth below!
But they remain within my mind,
Just as beautiful and as kind,
As I remember them and the joy,
They gave me when I was a boy!
Back to the atoms from which they came,
Just life's sorry game,
Back to part of this Universe,
Hope I join them by the end of this verse!!!
