It Has Been Many Years Since I First Saw Light Of Day
It has been many years since i first saw light of day
by Francis Duggan
And though the lust of the wander has carried me far away
From the old fields i loved where the rushes do grow
Yet so little of life's ways i can claim to know
Though it applies to everyone and not to the few
From life every day we do learn something new
And if we are open to learning this is not a lie
That we never stop learning till the day we do die
The words of the wise person i do recall
That the know it all people know little at all
Yet the more we get to know the more we realize
That so little we do know is this a surprise?
Yet we can only learn as we live it does seem fair to say
And from life we do learn something new every day.
