I’ve been digging through the albums
of my photos long ago
inviting all the memories
of family that I know

I grieve the ones who left too soon
the ones who stole my heart
and time has gentled some of this
but sadly we’re apart

And others left when years were long
their age made life complete
I feel some sadness deep within
but still it’s bittersweet

Oh, I could sob and not let go
of Life’s immutable way
but exactly how it all played out
makes me who I am today
