A PIECE OF YOUR LIFE

  Amesbury, Massachusetts, a time long ago,

  You were once so full of life, a young woman 
  With dreams.

  Seasons of four, between  warm Summer months 
  And the snow,

  Your lovely smile, energy as only a young person 
  Would know.

  A time before there were no children, a teen of 
  the fifties,
  Rock N' roll, Chuck Berry and Elvis, drive-in movies, 
  A toung love.

  Who watched you run under the Summer sun, with 
  Whom did you run,

  What was it like to be only seventeen, dancing 
  Within a dream.

  Out on a Saturday night, convertible cars, a hamburger 
  Under the stars,
  Did the boys chase you as you would run with such a
  Giggle, was this you?

  Your name was Barbara Jean, friends and high school 
  Back in the fifties,

  A piece of your life, before you became a mother and 
   A wife, your life.
                                 Keith Garrett
