A PIECE OF YOUR LIFE
Amesbury, Massachusetts, a time long ago,
You were once so full of life, a young woman
Seasons of four, between warm Summer months
And the snow,
Your lovely smile, energy as only a young person
A time before there were no children, a teen of the
Rock N' roll, Chuck Berry and Elvis, drive-in movies,
A young love.
Who watched you run under the Summer sun, with
Whom did you run,
What was it like to be only seventeen, dancing within
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.
