I Cannot See My Old Friends...

Someone wanted me to write a poem that is taken from

some poem that is one I really like so I wrote this one. 

It was inspired by, "I Cannot Sing the Old Songs,"
by Charlotte Arlington Barnard.


I Cannot See My Old Friends...

I cannot see my old friends
I knew long years ago.
Or hear their gentle voices;
Those days are gone, I know.
The mem'ries that now fill my heart
Bring happiness and pain.
I cannot see my old friends
Or feel their touch again.

I cannot see my old friends;
The friends who were so true;
Who shared the times, both good and bad,
That all of us went through..
We played our games and lived our lives;
We never failed to care,-
And if I tripped and fell, I knew
My friends would be right there.

I cannot see my old friends;
The teardrops sometimes start
When I recall the memories
They left here in my heart.
Perhaps when earthly bonds have loosed
And set my spirit free;
I'll once more see my old friends
For all eternity.

finis...
