When We Were Young

One never thinks that dawns…
Crystal clear and golden
Are not forever
…When one is young…
That Summer nights and full moons
Hayrides and balmy Junes
All come with an expiration date
…When one is young…
That fair skin and youth are a given
And all words are truth
And Summers last forever
…When one is young…
That the touch of a lover's hand
Is bliss beyond compare
And stardust Paints the nighttime air
…when one is young…
One never thinks beyond one's self
That youth shall soon rest upon the shelf
And different songs be sung…
Tho' mem'rieswill be all we have
To remind us of…the time
…when we were young…
