NEIGHBORS ARE A MEMORY
I lived when once a child around neighbors well known,
If you stay put long enough friendships are forever formed.
Whether or not you live in one place people still go away,
Neighbors are a memory more now in a fast moving world.
More and more we find that on our street there are no friends,
Are they a thing of the past, we live so close but rarely do we speak.
Are people so busy or do they just stay in their own worlds, keep to themselves,
Maybe just a glance, a sincere smile or nothing at all, are their names known?
The more houses are built, the less it seems we want to get acquainted,
Neighbors are a memory but not always in a world of what may be.
