MEMORIES
Copyright 1999.
 
I AM STROLLING BY THE SEA SO BLUE
MY HEAD IS FILLED WITH THOUGHTS OF YOU
TWO YOUNG PEOPLE STARTING OUT IN LIFE
I SEE YOU TAKE ME FOR YOUR WIFE
 
I AM LOOKING OUT ACROSS THE SEA
I AM REMEMBERING DAYS OF YOU AND ME
I FEEL THE BREEZE UPON MY FACE
ANOTHER TIME ANOTHER PLACE
 
I SEE A YOUNG MAN TALL AND STRONG
I SEE A YOUNG GIRL THEY BELONG
THEIR ZEST FOR LIFE FOR ALL TO SEE
I SEE A COUPLE YOU AND ME
 
I SEE A YOUNG WIFE HEAVY WITH CHILD
I SEE A HUSBAND SO BEGUILED
I SEE A BABY YOU AND ME
I SEE A PERFECT FAMILY
 
I AM LOOKING DOWN ON GOLDEN SANDS
I FEEL THE TOUCH OF FAMILIAR HANDS
I HEAR OUR SON SAY YES I DO
HIS PRETTY WIFE SAYS I DO TOO
 
I AM WALKING AGAIN ALONG THE SHORE
MY BODY IS HOT MY EYES ARE SORE
I SEE A MAN WITH HAIR TURNED GREY
A TIRED BODY COMING HOME EACH DAY
 
I AM LISTENING FOR A KEY IN THE DOOR
I AM BATHING HANDS CHAFFED AND SORE
I AM REMEMBERING WITH TEARS OF JOY
WE ARE GRANDPARENTS OF A BABY BOY
 
I FEEL THE TEARS RUN DOWN MY FACE
AND VANISH IN SAND WITHOUT A TRACE
I SEE A BODY LYING STILL
I FEEL THE PAIN I ALWAYS WILL
 
I SEE A FUNERAL TAKING PLACE
I SEE A CROWD WITHOUT A FACE
I WANT TO SCREAM I AM GOING MAD
I SEE A SON WITHOUT A DAD
 
I AM LOOKING OUT TO SEA AGAIN
I FEEL THE HEAT AND RE- LIVE THE PAIN
I SEE GRANDCHILDREN ONE, TWO, THREE
I DO NOT SEE YOU BUT I SEE ME
 
I AM WALKING HOME ACROSS THE SANDS
I FEEL THE TOUCH OF FAMILIAR HANDS
THE FACE FAMILIAR THE SMILE UNIQUE
YOU ALWAYS SMILE BUT NEVER SPEAK
 
I WATCH THE DAY DRAW TO AN END
I KNOW MY BROKEN HEART WONT MEND
BUT I THANK THE LORD FOR MY MEMORY
IT ALWAYS BRINGS YOU BACK TO ME
