Some years ago I came to this town,
A new area to me, I came with a frown,
Who are the people? What are they like?
Would I be accepted? Or get told go for a hike.
At first I felt lonely and very shut out,
Then after a while got out and about,
Met people here, met people there,
Soon I didn’t have time to spare.
Leaving old friends had made me feel sad,
Making new ones I was feeling so glad,
Today I am part of the community,
Andover is the place I am meant to be.
