I was always my fathers daughter,
then always my husbands wife
I became my children,s mother
an integral part of their life

now I dearly loved my father
not so much the husband, I fear
for my children I would fight lions
should any, by chance, venture near

but sometimes in a still moment
I would wonder how it would be
If just for the briefest of seconds
I could simply be no one but me?

My Father is no longer with us
the husband was kicked into touch
My sons have grown and flown now
and it doesn't happen so much

So now I am someone's Partner
but call me this at your peril
for after many decades of longing
I am simply known as Meryl!!
