I wrote this for a friend who lost his mother
_________________________________________

Looking through the old storybook
remembering the stories she told
Of kings of old and knights so bold
and the search for treasures of gold

Pages yellow and worn through time
but the magic will never die
In my heart my mothers' sweet singing
covers my questions of why

Storybook magic
keeps my mother alive
Storybook magic
dries the tears I've cried
Storybook magic
you're my secret key
Storybook magic
keeps her here with me

This house was never so cold and bare
you could feel its love for miles
That warming magic from a special woman
she could heal your heart with a smile

I never thought she'd leave so soon
disappearing from our lives
But all the stories that she told
that little magic keeps her alive

------------------
does anybody know
does anybody care
what are the words
we're attempting to share

Oh Chris---what a wonderful theme! As a children's librarian it is amazing how often adults search for that one book that was their favorite as a child...recapturing the closeness that was felt when it was read to them by someone that they loved. I hope you don't mind if I try my own hand at something along the same line....

Wintersurfer- go for it! I don't believe there can ever be enough written words for any subject.
