For you to feel as you feel right
I remember a time where the grass grew straight
Where the flowers grew up
Behind the bright white gate.
I remember the time where the pond burst to life
Where the fountain gave calmly
Under the golden sunlight.
I remember the time when the sprinklers flowed round
Where the trees grew strong
And life burst from the ground.
I remember the time where fruit grew sweet
Where the dogs would bark
And the birds would tweet.
I remember the time, in the grounds we would play
Where the family smiled together
Under the golden light of day.
What I would not give to go back to those days
But time has passed us
In an inglorious haze
So for now the memories are what I shall keep dear
From the times I remember
I can keep so near.
