I love the old porch swing’s poetry
What’s left of my life’s memories
Going back I find some new stories
Why did they hold them back from me
They think I don’t know what’s going on
Still watching the clocks till I’m gone
Where’s the poems I had for the songs
Tick tock I know what’s going on

“I cannot sing the old songs I sang long years ago
For heart and voice would fail me and foolish tears would flow.”
Is that your talented wisdom I just read?? I’d love to do that as a signature, with your permission if it’s yours and proper credit.

Ah, I wish I wrote this well, Michael.
This is an old poem I read in school once. You can find the whole poem here : http://www1.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/I_cannot_sing_the_old_songs_(Charlotte_Alington_Barnard)
Just got back to where I am now. Loved the lyrics/poem. It’s beautiful. Readers take a moment and follow the link to read it.
