What visions would I see
Of days in far off future years,
That famous I would be.
Imagined I, myself on stage,
With lovely voice so loud,
Iâ€™d knock the socks off of the folks
In an admiring crowd.
The songs I practiced as a child,
The catchy tunes in rhyme,
My mother said were worldly ones
And were not worth my time.
â€śSlow Boat to Chinaâ€ť did I sing.
Iâ€™d croon out â€śFive Foot Two,â€ť
But Mom would stop me when Iâ€™d get
To â€ścould she woo and coo.â€ť
Iâ€™d twirl around on roller skates
And turn and twist and glide,
While dreaming of the praise Iâ€™d get
In roller rinks worldwide.
To dive like Esther Williams could
Was something that I yearned,
But sadly, that was not to be--
To swim, I never learned.
I fancied I might be a star
In movies or TV,
As popular as Doris Day.
Now how cool could that be?
And if I failed at all of these,
Iâ€™d take up some great cause,
Then be renowned for nobleness.
And gain the worldâ€™s applause.
A wife, a mother, teacher, too,
Those are what I became.
In Godâ€™s will I have happiness
That could not come from fame.
