REMEMBER US FOR:
Is it stranRC that sorrows die,
That our griefs grow less and lcss
That they touch us by and by
With a soothing gentleness?
That the memories we hold
In a grasp that grows more strong
Are those of the days of gold,
And the laughter, and the song?
Spendthrifts with our moments glad
Memory is generous;
Every happy day we had
She one time gives back to us,
Gives the song without the sigh,
Gives the hope without the fears,
Coloring the days gone by
Through the prism of the years.
Mariners who fare afar ,
Over seas that swell and change,
Under alien slcy and star,
Into channels new and strange,
Still we cherish as the best,
Whether home or outward bound.
Not the windings of our quest,
Out the treasures we have found.
Twilight song, the lull of noon,
Star-strewn night and silver dawn,
Whisper-songs that come and croon
Of the wondrous days agonc
Days remembrance pictures fair,
Shimmering in sun and shade,
Unforgotten, for they were
The fair luvens that we made.
