Silent running, over and over again, the thoughts of yesteryear,
names and faces so sweet and dear, but now long gone,
and forever, I shall shed a longing tear.
Places of sand, surf, and blue skies that touched mother earth.
Days of our lives that we thought would never end!
But, end they have, with few regrets and with the solace of knowing,
we passed each day, in our individual way.
So it be, we did the best we could…you see!
