Jeff Richardson A thoughtful and reflective piece. The lyrics an examination of the inner man. Regret, a powerful learning tool; forgiving ourselves not so easy; especially when our faults and thoughts are revealed to us with glaring clarity.

lyrics

As evening approaches
And shadows grow long
My thoughts drift to times past
Of family and friends
Youth that never ends
In a memory no one ever grows old

How I miss that childhood bliss
To be young, naive and sinless
Realities cost is innocence lost
When nightmares are no longer dreams

Just as summer’s shade
Becomes autumnal shadows
A place that once gave comfort
Now renders me so cold

And just as the only constant
is change
I gain solace knowing the one
Who transcends every age

As evening has passed
And the shadows are gone
My thoughts drift to tomorrow
Of family and friends
A new day will begin
Full of joy and sorrow

How I miss that childhood bliss
To be young, naive and sinless
Realities cost is innocence lost
When nightmares are no longer dreams
