I remember one mothers day
when I was little, I wanted to
buy my mom a special present.
Since I was old enough
to cross the street by myself,
I walked down to a little variety store.
Oh what a fun place to go.
It carried everything.
Even penny candy.
But I had my mind set on something beautiful.
And it smell real good.
It was a beautiful blue bottle of
As a little girl I thought this was
the most beautiful bottle ever seen.
Cobalt blue, with a gold cap and gold label.
Oh I knew she'd feel like she
had an evening in Paris when she wore it.
For I felt it was magical.
I even threw in a few pieces
of penny candy.
Mom was surprised and happy with her gift.
And I got to share her candy.
Although years later, I remember seeing
that beautiful bottle of perfume
sitting on her shelf,
almost still full...
Smell, maybe it was all in my mind,
because of that beautiful magical bottle.
it was a special mother's day.
When mothers were mothers
and children were innocent.
