Days Gone by …
We were so very young,
in a time of great change,
our hearts were pure and true,
our dreams just incredible in days gone by.
We lived and loved,
friends to the bitter end,
laughed and danced
and longed for true romance.
It was a time like no other,
strutting to a disco beat,
these moments come but once in a lifetime
and then just in the blink of an eye, they fade away.
High school ruled our hearts,
like rock and roll our souls.
Friendships never forgotten,
memories engraved forever.
We were like wild birds,
that could fly to the skies,
we had dreams
and hopes for a bright tomorrow.
Now scattered everywhere,
but true friendships never die,
we have our special times –
that have bound us forever more.
Dreamy reflections tell the passing of time
and sometimes I wonder,
if the same stars –
are still twinkling in our eyes.
I know that who we once were we still are,
my friends tell me we’re still the same.
Where it counts in our hearts and souls –
only the firelight has become dimmer.
Oh, I know that still,
we could bend time to our will,
if only we keep on believing,
if only we keep on dreaming.
Days come and days go,
but I still know,
that rock and roll has that magic –
to bring me back to yesteryear.
No, it hasn’t been so long,
I do believe they’re still playing my song,
I still have my best friends
and haven’t lost all of my hopes.
Sometimes I wonder,
if growing old is a myth,
if we continue to be young at heart
and keep true to ourselves.
So I’ll treasure the days,
that have been,
the friends that I miss
and the memories that shine so very bright.
