Old Friends
Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics


Old friends, old friends
Sat on their park bench like bookends
A newspaper blown through the grass
Falls on the round toes
Of the high shoes of the old friends

Old friends, winter companions, the old men
Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sunset
The sounds of the city sifting through trees
Settles like dust on the shoulders of the old friends

Can you imagine us years from today
Sharing a park bench quietly
How terribly strange to be seventy

Old friends, memory brushes the same years
Silently sharing the same fears

Old friends, old friends,
Sat on their park bench like bookends
A newspaper blown through the grass
Falls on the round toes
of the high shoes of the old friends
Old friends, winter companions, the old men
Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sun
The sounds of the city sifting through trees
Settles like dust on the shoulders of the old friends
Can you imagine us years from today,
Sharing a park bench quietly
How terribly strange to be seventy
Old friends, memory brushes the same years,
Silently sharing the same fears

It's strange to be 70 without Kathleen, my wife of 46 years, who died of cancer on January 30th. Until we are together again , my love.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your beloved, what a very challenging year, so many of us lost a beloved. My heart aches. I wish you well - be safe.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I'm sure you were beautiful together, and she knew how much you loved her, every day.
She still lives on, in the memories of her loved ones, and in your love to her.

Stay strong, my friend, and smile - for her.

How terribly strange to be 70.
Paul will turn 78 in October ... Art in November.
Old friends in deed.

Amen to that.

I always feel moved at the verse "How terribly strange to be seventy", because I know they're both 79 right now. And I am too young so I hadn't and won't ever have a possibibility to see them live. At least I am grateful that we have youtube and other technology to save that beautiful music. I hope it will never be forgotten, even if I would be 79. "Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you".
