-Linda Lee Lyberg
Shrouded in lies and mystery
How did you and my mother meet?
What is my true family history?
Did you sweep her off her feet?
What made her fall for a man like you?
Was she too sheltered and naive?
A man who was funny, told a joke or two
Did she not see the mask worn to deceive?
Did her lonely heart with your kiss begin to race?
When you smiled was her world brighter?
Was all she saw your handsome face?
When you took her hand, her step lighter?
Now you are gone and so is she
Am I forever left in the dark?
How I came to be, not for me to see
What started this whole fateful lark?
