You could start with the Paul Simon song, "Ten Years". Of course, you could finish with that too. Okay, here's my filk, I didn't have to change *anything*. <g>

Ten Years

You are moving on a crowded street
Through various shades of people
In the summer?s harshest heat
A story in your eye

Well, speak until your mind is at ease

Ten years come and gone so fast
I might as well have been dreaming
Sunny days have burned a path
Across another season

A fortune rises to the sky

Ten years come and gone so fast
I might as well have been dreaming

You are driving down an empty road
Beside a shady river
When the sky turns dark as stone
And the trees begin to shiver

The Grace of God is nigh

Ten years come and gone
And that flash could ever be forgotten
Sunny days have burned a path
Across another season

How do the powerless survive?

Ten years come and gone so fast
I might as well have been dreaming

If you look into your future life
Ten years from this question
Do you imagine a familiar light
Burning in the distance?

The love that never dies

Ten years come and gone so fast
I might as well have been dreaming
Sunny days have burned a path
Across another season

Mary
