I've been to Jupiter and seen Mars
Even danced amongst the stars
I've sang in choirs and written lyrics for famous singers
Where memories always still lingers
I've waited at tables of Kings and Queens
Spoken to paupers who camp beside blue streams
I've sat at many a Gypsy campfire
Listening to their stories which my soul did inspire
I've drank at bars and taverns and inns
Played roulette in Vegas and watched the wheel as it spins
I've laughed and cried with those so near
And comforted many who were with fear
I've born a child two, three and four
At number five the angels knocked at my door
I've been and seen places far and wide
Leaving my footprints in every stride
I've thrown pebbles into many a sea
Watched them come tumbling back to me
I've picked tulips in Amsterdam and skied on the slopes of St. Moritz
Been astounded at the beauty of the Black Forest
I've looked into more than one crystal ball had readings of tarot too…
Some were false and others turned out to be very true
I've raced with horses, ploughed and harvested corn fields
Out there I found out what life really yields
I have worn make-up and curled my hair, worn many a fine and well known fashions
Have loved with the deepest and sincerest passion
I've learnt to forgive and not ever to judge
In my heart I must also have no grudge
I've held a hand of one at deaths door
Watched as away to heaven she soars
I've been happy and sad in many ways
Seen new beginnings which life portrays
I've played hide and seek also tic-tack-toe
Made some kid happy with a short puppet show
I've realised to be alone is my fate and dreams are only made while sleeping
In the pages of my heart are etched the memories all well worth my keeping
I've written love letters hundreds and more
Some I posted others are still in my draw
And now…..
I've found a love so beautiful and true
Yes! Girl it is the day that I found you!
