An old lady remembers her youth.

ELLIE


Little old lady sitting, sorting out the past

A lifetime of memories gathered,
seen dimly through a glass.

My number one was a sailor,
The next, he died in the War.

My daughter married beneath her,
She never comes home any more.

Oh! Wait! Heres a picture of me
And my man when we wed

I member the love we shared then.
Her wrinkled old face went red.

Well, I wont say Im old, but Im eighty this year.

(With a lace-trimmed hanky she blotted a tear.)

Then she walked me to the doorway
Chattering all the while,

lingering just to ask me
To come back for a visit one day.

Little old lady sitting,
Sorting through the past,

Putting it all in perspective
Seeing all clearly at last.
