The Old City (PED 3)

Cover Image

There are so many places with cobblestone lanes

The histories of thousands, if not millions, of souls

Passed by on that uneven surface

On foot, with carts, in buggies or cars

Carrying heavy burdens or none at all

If those stone could talk what would they speak of

The innocense of children playing

The joy of young lovers hand in hand

The sorrow of a funeral procession of an honest man

Or would they speak of bloodshed and greed

Of hate, envy; the things that much life miserable

There will be new stories to tell as more days pass

But the cobblestones of the Old City

Will forever hold onto the past
