The Mentors Of My Childhood Years

From where i now live in distance far away
The mentors of my childhood years in eternal rest lay
In life of their biggest worries they seemed to make light
They were blessed with the gifts of wisdom and insight
Of their heritage they did take a certain pride
And with their life's small blessings they felt satisfied
They never did yearn for to live in places elsewhere
Or to try out their luck in the big World out there
Happy to raise their children and to grow old in their beloved home-place
Where everyone was well known and a familiar face
Everyone did know everyone by name
And none of them did yearn for a worldly fame
They did live their lives in an unselfish way
And they would seem out of place in the Human World of today.
