How big the world was back then
When goodbyes brought tears
When hugs were not brief
When kisses were many
When words were few
And journeys brought only goodbyes.

How small the world has now become
With cell phones
And web cams, at finger's touch.
Around the world with the push of a button
Tears to smiles in the blink of an eye
The pains of past journeys
Fast fading with time.

Cork to California
New York to OZ
London to Galway
Boston as well
Goodbyes have been replaced
With apathy and diffusion
