To Wherever You Go

As long as your gift of memory you retain
The past in your thoughts you will visit again
And though time that rusts iron is becoming your foe
Your past goes with you to wherever you go
The memories remain with you of the town far away
Of where you first looked on the bright lamp of day
Of where you spent most of your younger years
Though for what used to be you have shed your last tears
Any of your childhood friends you may never again see
Though they remain as they were in your memory
The memories of what was with you bound to stay
For as long as you live until your last night and day
Some you went to school with where the deceased are do lay
And the now is all that does matter as the wise one does say.
