Fothering Day: The Lady at 70

The lady she had
a silver tongue
For to sing she said
And maybe that's all
Wait for the dawn
and we will have that song
When it ends it will seem
That we hear silence fall
The lady she had
a golden heart
For to love, she said
And she did not lie
Wait for the dawn
and we'll watch for the sun
As we turn it will seem
To arise in the sky
We heard that song
while watching the skies
Oh the sound it rang
So clear through the cold
Then silence fell
and the sun did arise
On a beautiful morning
silver and gold
