Have you ever

Have you ever taken a walk in the park
on a sunday afternoon
did you see the old man
sitting alone staring blankly
at row upon row of empty benches
did you take time to pause for thought
did you think
one day that might be you

Have you ever seen the child
chasing time running laughing
yes chasing time with all the pleasure
and innocence of youth
do you realise once that was you

Have you ever seen an old friend
noticed the game that time has
played on thier face
did you ask
old friend is that realy you

Have you ever looked in the mirror
noticed the lines that apear fresh
day by day
seen the hair falling as leaves
in an autem wind
heard the crack and grind of bones
as an old engine seizing
do you ask is that really me

Have you ever

Have you ever
