Class of 1975 – Bishop Amat High School 40th Reunion

Posted by Gerry on November 30th, 2015

Your laughter was delightful
that is what brought me in
to talk about finding strength
and building a fine life again

looking at the vistas on the bay
and mountains we have seen
the past still explains something
about how you are today

memory is fiction highly susceptible to distortion
memory is rewriting of thoughts
memory of decades gone
youth and visions dancing on

holding to each other
as we are moving on
dreams of life ahead
youthful wishes wonder
where we’ll go
and who we’ll be
time will tell us all we know
so get ready set and go

now the years have passed along
wives and husbands
daughters sons
have writ their song upon us

looking back to share the past
we come together now
to glimpse the fate of these old friends
our memories hold fast

events, experiences in life, have moved us on through time
we made our way
we had our say
we lived our values daily

now back together in this place
we celebrate
we made it
we honor our knowledge
and time went by
then brought us all together
