I guess you'd call me sentimental
because I reminisce all the time
of days in my life that are gone
long ago days of a special kind.
Each day memories grow stronger
of my unforgettable youthful years
how my family would comfort me
when I had reasons to shed tears.
The little we had we always shared
no one received more than the other
we were poor in money but rich in love
our richness was loving one another.
Times have changed since back then
but memories of those years remain
it was then I learned love of family
and material wealth aren't the same.
