Day By Day

You can’t go back

The past isn’t where you left it

You’ve changed you’ve gone ahead

And so have they

They changed the road

Built houses on a field

And you’ve grown old

Old and very grey


Photos in an album yesterday

I didn’t want to look

Not look that way

For some have died and some have gone away

And life goes on

Important that you say


The river flows most surely to the sea

Sometimes it idles

Whirlpools fitfully

Then hurries over stones

Singing merrily

We should do the same

Now come with me
