Not So Long Ago

by In All Our Years

Not so long ago-
On a mid November day-
A girl was born-
So beautiful, a parents dream.

Oh how could I have known- I’d love her…

Not so long ago-
On a mid September day-
I fell in love-
So beautiful,  a husband’s dream.

Oh how could I have known- it was you…

Not so long ago-
On a February day-
A boy was born-
So beautiful, a parent’s dream.

Oh how could I have known- I’d love you…

Not so long ago-
On each and every day-
The mother she became-
So wonderful, a family’s dream

Oh how could I have known-
The life we both would share-

Oh not so long ago.
