FROM A LONG TIME AGO

                "FROM A LONG TIME AGO"


 I lived life times ago on farmland worked with hands, 
 A mans' hands,
 A family we were, my wife, children, and animals for pets, 
 Back in time.
 Possibly I went by the name of Sam, a man of principles, 
 Of beliefs,
 My children may have been raised to believe In the Lord, 
 Too respect.
 If a wife I did have then she might have been a beautiful 
 Woman,
 She would have been a great cook and a fine and decent 
 Person.
 Imagine there would have been much love In our home,

 Working hard from sunrise till sunset would have been 
 This family.
 Friends' and neighbors' with names now vanished Into 
 A memory,
 A town that may have existed but no longer alive, a long 
 Time ago.
 I may have been known as Sam from a long time ago, 
 Maybe so,
 Land I may have owned and worked my fingers to the bone.

 It's possible this man of beliefs had a family that he 
 Loved so much,
 I could have had children of which grew up and had 
 Families too.
 To a man named Sam who may have lived a long time ago,

 Who may have lived with a loving wife, children, and  
 Had many,
 Caring good friends', If I had known you from a long 
 Time ago.
