The Old City (PED 3)

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
