Die taal van herinneringe: 40 years ago – a memory.

40 Years ago – a memory

So long ago

so far away

are the days.

Too long to remember

too far to reach.

Did they ever exist?

But here and there, unexpectedly,

there is a coat

a 21st year mug

a Union Jack with inscription

even a photograph

and of cource: a diary –

small proofs of yesteryear

when life was great

worries few

adventures plenty

and love bountyful.

Yes, all the sadness of the past

deminishes every day as time moves on

but the memory of you prevail

as part of a special time

so long ago

so far away.
