I HOPE YOU HAD THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE
You were once a child, do you remember being a girl?
Having your tea party, a dollhouse with all you pretend.
A swing set, do you remember riding the wind? so young back then,
Think back to your Kindergarten school, lost friends and you.
You saw things a son not born would ever see, you had dreams,
There were school dances and your favorite movie stars,
Listening to songs of great singers, drive-in movies, driving in cars.
You were born with the Wizard of Oz, wandered through the fifties as a teen,
Wars were many, the sixties and a family, all the places you have seen.
A touch older but will forever live in you, a little girl from long ago scenes,
I hope you had the time of your life,
Remember who you are, a girl who dreamed, Barbara Jean.
Love you, Mom
