From Where I Was Born

From where i was born and raised i've been so long away
That to many there i would be a stranger today
The babe when i left there now in his or her life's prime
I've not been there for twenty six  years that does seem a long time
My physical best years to the forever long gone
But people grow older and life does  go on
I was in my life's prime four decades ago
But time as they say becomes everyone's  foe
And in the  townland where into a man i did grow
So few of me nowadays would even know
But the past it has gone and the future ahead
And we  live in the now as has often been said
And the longest lived human life in time not a long span
So hang on to it for as  long as you can.
