    The Girl I Used To Be

    She came tonight as I sat alone..
    The girl I used to be....
    And she gazed at me with her earnest eye
    And questioned reproachfully:

    Have you forgotten the many plans
    And hopes I had for you?
    The great career,the splendid fame,
    all the wonderful things to do?
    Where is the mansion of stately height
    With all its gardens rare?
    The silken robes that I dreamed for you
    And the jewels in your hair?

    And as she spoke, I was very sad
    For I wanted her pleased with me...
    This slender girl from the shadowy past
    The girl that I used to be.

    So gently rising, I took her hand
    And guided her up the stairs
    Where peacefully sleeping, my babies lay
    Innocent, sweet, and fair.

    And I told her that these are my only gems,
    And precious they are to me;
    That silken robes is my motherhood
    Of costly simplicity.

    And my mansion of stately height is love,
    And the only career I know
    Is serving each day in these sheltered walls
    For the dear ones who come and go

    And as I spoke to my shadowy guest,
    She smiled through her tears at me.
    And I saw the woman that I am now
    Pleased the girl I used to be.
