Army Mom’s Safe Haven

BUY ME A TICKET

Buy me a ticket around the
room and back
Bring me a rose, a balloon,
french-fries, and a banana split –
Race me around the
living room track…

Buy me a moment of your time:
How much will it cost?

If it costs too much
I’ll cry if it’s lost.

Hide a cookie for me
in some strange place
and snap a Polaroid of
my laughing face

Where are you, Mr.?
Where are you, my dear?

I’m getting lonesome
while I’m waiting here

Come on and find me
Buy me a round trip
ticket to the sun ~

like Rod McKuen says:
discard the old memories
it’s time for some fun;

Well, I’ll be waiting
anticipating

the arrival of Spring

I hope she’ll bring me
just one thing……

you.
