where did the time go
wasn’t it just yesterday
when you played with dolls

weren’t you still in school
color guard in marching band
every friday night

then you came to me
told me about a young man
broke my heart in two

walked you down the aisle
then performed the nuptials
held back all my tears

college behind you
teaching job in special ed
made your dad real proud

came to talk with me
a little boy in your class
wanted to adopt

was i there enough
wasn’t i both mom and dad
i’m your biggest fan

where did the time go?
