Our Older Songs

Why is it that our favorite songs...Are those of long ago
...And they become more wonderful...The older that we
grow?...The melodies of modern times...Attract our ear
today...But as the calendar moves on...The music fades
away...The only answer is the fact...That we associate
...Each singing composition with...A very special date
...And every date of happiness...Is one that meets the
dawn...As love endures forever or...The sentiment is
gone...The older any song becomes...The sweeter it may
be...According to the picture of...Our heartfelt memory.
