In life so grim around me.

My mind turns back a page.

To memories far behind me.

Deep in mists of age.

So far a mind d'oth wander.

Through tunnels e'er so old.

To stay a while and ponder.

On cherished days retold.

For - now I'm getting older.

Much of my life now spent.

No more youthful vigour.

My body twisted - bent!

Time spent reminiscing

Even for a little while.

Brings light into the shadows,

And leaves a wistful smile.....
