Open Doors Remembered


Remembering all the miles
Of road that I've been down --
If I could count the smiles
Would they outnumber frowns?
If all the doors that opened
And bid me to come in,
Could, once again, be open now --
Which one would I go in?

There was a night in Memphis
That warmed me from the snow.
And, later, in Chicago ---
What happened, I don't know.
There was a day in Monterrey --
Before the sunset came --
Two arms that held me tenderly
I never saw again.

The years all passed so quickly,
And it's hard to say just when --
But I believe a night in Boston
Caused me never to look back again.
So, some nights have been keepers --
And, some I threw away ---
But all the doors that opened
Are in my heart to stay.
