The Days of Our Lives

Empty Lanes

The solitary grain of rice
Wind-blown, sun-dried
On the deck of a ship
Off to a faraway land

Of memories cherished
And days forgotten
Mistakes made, and goodbyes forbade
Reminding us of the days of our lives

The empty lanes
Where you played
Your favourite sport
With your favourite friends

You don’t know who’s rich
You don’t know who’s smart
All you care is who plays fair
Till you get your chance, all’s done.

The empty lanes now left
Children all grown up
Snobs, cities, wealth, contacts
Never looking back.

That grain of rice
Takes you back to
The Days of Your Lives
