~ An Hour With You~


(For My Sisters and Brothers)

I took a walk down memory lane
Sitting in my rocking chair
The old home place flashed in my mind
And all of you were there

With a picture album on my lap
My mind wandered back in time
Recalling memories of long ago
When life was so sublime

Mother and Daddy as they were then
Worry on their furrowed brows
Living a hard and simple life
With seven children in the house

Picture after picture told the story
Of bad times and of good
Of special days and holidays
In our old neighborhood

Time moved on and we were grown
Itchy feet made us want to roam
Big dreams filled with wanderlust
Dear parents left at home

Mother and Daddy are both gone now
And Lena, so humble and sweet
It's hard to believe those times have passed
Memories never to repeat

So many thoughts went through my mind
Holding this album I'd compiled
And as I wiped away the tears
I could've sworn that my heart smiled
