Looking back at 60 years in 20 year increments.


Twenty Years

They were twenty when they met
College pub on Thursday night
Danced right through the second set
Never let her out of sight
Later on in the café
Talked of hopes and dreams and fears
They both had so much to say
They talked until the next day
Of the last twenty years

Now each day is just a daze
His job, her job and the kids
They both wonder if it pays
To try to live their lives like this
Never time to think or feel
Wasted words that no one hears
They both worry time will steal
The next twenty years

Now some nights they feel the truth
On those nights they long for change
Miss the passions of their youth
And the feel of someone strange
How can forty seem so cold
All this work for these careers
Where's the hope they tried to hold
Sometimes they feel they grown old
In the last twenty years

But the kids will grow
Leave their home behind
Jobs come and go
He and she may find
In their hearts they know
They did not waste time
And they'll talk the night away
Sitting in a small café
(Remembering when...)
