The Gate Of Lost Memories

I opened the gate wide one sunny day
And you wouldn’t believe what I found
Why, they were memories I’d forgotten
They were so pure and country bound

Places I used to live were there
Folks from way back in my childhood
Buildings worn now, with great age
But right where they once had stood

It was like I’d died and gone to heaven
For there were folks from so long ago
I was small in my mind it seemed
Oh, and I saw family that I loved so

A dog that once had been mine
And the cat he used to love to chase
I was afraid that I would forget
So I made a mental note just in case

I hope someday I can revisit
These places hidden in the past
I want them to stay with me forever
But I know that nothing ever lasts!
