I was a girl, only a moment ago,
And now I’m a woman, standing tall,
These words they come, these words they go,
And I am still emotional.
The wind through the magnolias,
For the moment my heart has stole,
And I take their smiles in my soul,
These friends the most precious gift I’ve known.
The world was so far, only a moment ago,
Hopes only waiting to bloom,
Now I see into this world I must go,
Both bittersweet and beautiful, almost too soon…
Heart and dreams will be fulfilled;
All along the way, even when I’m crying,
For you I’ll still be smiling…
