From new born to adulthood,
so great the distance seemed,
that I will think of all my days,
and see them in my dreams.
All too soon these years have passed,
the best years that I knew.
And when its time to say goodbye,
its me that’ll have the last laugh.
Of course the paths of my life,
as those of all the rest,
take many different courses,
north, south, east, and west.
My life too will be different.
All will be blest in some ways.
With some bitter and some sweet,
but much more happy days.
Farewell old friends and lovers.
And though our ways may part,
I will always remember you all.
Some dearest to my heart.
