Of all the times we do recall

We laughed and hugged and had it all

The world seemed like a better place

Day started with a happy face !

Can you remember how we cried

When trouble came or someone died,

Life had a value way back when

What changed it all so quickly then ?

Has it occurred to you to find

That we are facing life’s decline

Where dreams belong to yesterday,

Hopes come and go and fade away ?

The tender thoughts that filled our mind

Those years ago have waxed unkind

And selfish seems to be the word

Describing acts both seen and heard.

What brought us to this hapless end

Where we are forced here to defend

Our love of God, our pride of land

Our self respect, our helping hand ?
