Just the other day I came across a notebook full of my moms old writing. In it I was delighted to find a poem about me entitled “Stacey Lynn.” I just had to share it with everyone as I thought it was so special! It was written in 1971 according to my mom, when I was just five years old!
Stacey Lynn by Sylvia Xxxxx
What’ll I do when she’s grown and gone?
The hour’s will seem ever so long.
I yell at her now, but what would I do?
If she wasn’t there for me to?
I watch as she plays, a mother of ten,
When she really gets married what will I do then?
I know she’s not all I have, but she’s the most important part.
No matter what she does or where she goes,
She’ll always carry my heart.
