Once I was a young girl with dreams and aspirations
Then I was a lover, lying in strong and caring arms
As a wife I enjoyed a strong and loving relationship
Then as a mother I experienced the bond of children
 
Now as I reach my older years I’m a lover no more
Neither do I have anyone to wake up to in the morning
There’s no longer anyone knocking on my door
Nor does the phone ring with greetings in my ears
 
I often look back and wonder, were did it go?
I sometimes dwell and ponder the ‘what if’ scenario
The aspirations now, have long been and gone
Although I’m tired and aging the dreaming still goes on
