I want to hold on

To memories that are gone

The people, the places

The names and their faces

I know that in time

For what’s lost I will pine

So now I record

Each memory stored

But when my mind starts to fade

And the hair becomes grayed

My body will change

And the world will seem strange

The ages will move on

And soon we’ll be gone

I hope then I’ll leave

Some memories to weave

From afar some will say

I’ll still need to play

Let’s hope it’s a lyre

And not still with fire
