DO YOU REMEMBER?
Do you remember all that long time ago when we were so young?
All the walks we took, the places where we stopped to have some tea.
The times we looked and said, ‘Oh why can’t this just go on and on?’
And you said, ‘Will you marry me?’ and I agreed.
Do you remember when we took our children ‘long those same old lanes?
The people we’d meet used to say to us, ‘My what pretty children you’ve got!’
The picnics we took, the games we played on those lovely days.
The children hid and we’d search and call that they were lost.
Then our children grew up and met, in turn, the ones they love.
And when walking along our walks would say,
‘This is where we came when we were young.’
Remember, can we forget those days of long ago?
Tho’ evening calls and the shadows fall we’ll never forget.
But it’s growing late, let’s go home.
We don’t want to lose our way.
Paul Dominic Gray, Derek Wilsher 25th January 1969
