Such Wonderful Memories

Such wonderful memories with him do remain
Of friends of the past he will not meet again
Too old to return to the town far away
Where he did first look on the bright lamp of day
Many of the boys and girls he went to school with where the deceased are do lay
Time takes care of all as some are known to say
A divorced grandfather in his mid seventies his best years long gone
And the clock on his life ever ticks on and on
Where to most people his would be a stranger's face
Today in his hometown he would feel out of place
He has not been in his first hometown for close to forty years
And though for what used to be he has shed his last tears
He retains the good memories of the what used to be
In the far away town he will never more see.
