It only takes a word or two
To jog our memory back,
To thoughts and things of yesterday
Those "pieces of the past."

When we were small and the world seemed large
We listenend and we learned
To things our parents had to say
With great love and much concern.

To bring back only one more day
We'd give so very much
To hear those little worthwhile things
Or feel that special touch.

So to our children we pass the things
That are instilled in us to last
And go with us forever more
Those "pieces of the past."
