Goodbye old house, you’ve been a friend
But Our time together, has come to a end
For 22 years, you’ve seen children grown
their time and laughter will stay in this home.
You kept us safe and you kept us warm
Four Grand Sons, you saw born..
they laughed and played, felt safe in your walls
running and jumping on steps in the halls..
For 22 summers and winters you’ve been
where Grandma and grandpa, spent their time with them.
22 years it seems a long time ago
so quickly they passed by, ( where did time go?)
But it was never a house of our own
we just rented, the house we called home.
Now it’s come time, for a new place to stay
and where we are going, seems so far away.
But we will remember this house and her walls
and all the neighbors and friends who made calls..
It wasn’t a “great house”, nothing fancy by means
Just a shell of a old house, that held all our dreams..
To say i won’t miss her, would be a big lie
She holds lots of memories, of time passing by.
I leave her feeling thankful,for the years that I’ve been
walking through her doors, glad to be home again.
And if we’re lucky, we’ll be just as safe and secure,
In the new house we’ll call home, just like we did her.
So goodbye old house, remember us well
We’ve started new ventures, new stories to tell.
but you’ll always be part of, our lives till the end
you’ve been a blessing, a good trusted friend.
In memory of our home we moved out of a month ago today….goodbye old house.
