The Beautiful Memories

The beautiful memories are with me today
Of beautiful places i knew far away
Just after sunset on an evening in Spring
In the leafy groves the wild birds do sing
Old memories live on despite time's decay
The hawthorns resplendent in their white blooms of the May
Snowdrops, primroses and bluebells on the ditch of bohreen
How lovely Spring looks in her cloak of green
The past may be gone but the memories stay
Of the sun shining bright in the sky blue and gray
For as long as the gift of memory with me does remain
The beautiful sights of the past i will retain
But the now is all that does matter does seem true to say
And at the stroke of midnight the past will be today.
