Lifetime Journey with You

(written by Carolyn Green)

The lyrics:

They were just kids in the forties after the Second World War.  He’d find her working at her father’s restaurant she’d hold his hand out the door.  He had a small pearl from Asia. From his time in the service at sea, had it set in a ring she could wear on her finger, as he questioned his Rose Mary ... 

What would you say to a lifetime, no matter what we go through.  I think that I’d like a lifetime, a lifetime journey with you.

When they started they had next to nothing and one more war drew him away. He came back home to a new baby daughter and they built on the hopes they had laid.  A new job that traveled the country, the home grew as five more kids came. There were baseball games, treehouses, road trips, gymnastics; she made a home full of play.

Chorus

 

Kids went to college, found husbands and wives. Grandchildren all came along. After fifty Septembers and fond memories, they now wonder where the time has gone.
