memories demolished

I HAD A LOVELY DAY TODAY,

SAW MY PAST ALONG THE WAY,

I TOOK A TRIP TO DAYS GONE BY,

IT MADE ME REALISE TIME DOES FLY,

I FOUND THE STREET WHERE I WAS BORN,

JUST TO SEE IT HAD ALL GONE,

I LOOKED IN SADNESS AS IT ALL CAME BACK TO ME,

WHERE MY HOUSE STOOD IS NOW A FACTORY,

A HAPPY LITTLE GIRL WITHOUT A CARE,

USED TO LIVE HERE, IT'S NOT FAIR,

THE WAY THE FUTURE OVERRIDES THE PAST,

GOOD JOB MEMORIES ARE BUILT TO LAST,

BECAUSE WITHOUT THEM LIFE WOULD  BE,

JUST  A LIFELONG MISERY,

EVEN MY SUNDAY SCHOOL STANDS NO MORE,

NOT EVEN A TILE LEFT FROM THE FLOOR,

I WONDER WHAT GOD WOULD MAKE OF THIS,

HIS HOLY NURSERY GONE AMISS,

BUT EVEN THOUGH THEY'RE TAKEN AWAY,

MY CHILDHOOD MEMORIES ARE HERE TO STAY.

Hi Pat, I'm Cathy from the States, got here via your talented son, who I haven't visited in too long, shame on this 57 yr-old grandma!  I truly enjoyed the singing you 1st recorded on Steve's old Journal a while ago, and now this new one, plus your poetry, well how talented can one family be?  Truly I identify with your words, and I'm so grateful I at least have those memories while they tear down the landmarks of the past, something called "progress".  Stay well!  xoxo CATHY
