With a twinkle in her eye

And a breathless sigh

She knew that today

Was the day to say goodbye

It was time to spread her wings

And leave behind her childish things

Leave behind her childish ways

The carefree days

Of a teenager at play

The table that held her dolls

And then her Barbies

Her make up

And then her car keys

Would go with her

On this day that she said goodbye

Forever remaining

The apple of her Mum’s eye
