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
