A SPECIAL PLACE, by Claude Peter Dhuet

A SPECIAL PLACE
Claude Peter Dhuet

There is a place that I keep special-
In my heart most every day-
A school that I long ago attended-
Now many miles away.

It reminds me of a time-
When I was very young-
And everyone around me-
Was always on the run.

This boundless energy that we had-
Was taken then for granted-
We thought that it would never end-
We thought we would always have it.

But years went by and with those years-
Not only time was changing-
For with those passing years we knew-
Other things were re-arranging.

The boundless energy we once had-
Just seemed to slip away-
And a little more quietly said goodbye-
With each of our passing day.

We heard of friends no longer with us-
How could that possibly be true-
Not my friends with the boundless energy-
Not my friends that once I knew.

It seems that time is not always kind-
But one thing seldom changes-
Memories we have of the friends we knew-
In that school we once attended.
