where did it go

I was a happy go lucky girl
a good person
though rebel a lot i did
arguing with my parents
insisting yes when they said no
but pampered and protected always
staying with them till i found
the man i wanted to make mine

oh dear life things were going smooth
even over troubled waters
little did I know that would be only ripples
in the sea of life

felt the little bump but married my first love
then moved in with my other family from my family'
I spread my cheer and love
and received them back with equal fervour
With little glitches which were smnoothed over


oh dear life things were going smooth
even over troubled waters
little did I know that would be only ripples
in the sea of life

Came over to a new world
leaving family...just my love and me
Excited and nervous and alone
We made our lives here
learning life's lessons along the way
Learning the hard lessons and curves life throws at you
Our perseverance and grit helped us tide over that

oh dear life things were going smooth
even over troubled waters
little did I know that would be only ripples
in the sea of life

Then moved on to the "big" things
Jobs for both of us, working hard and sincere
And once we were cruising along safely
We ventured into the parenthood role
Two wonderful boys later
Life was joy and nervousness and a kind of love
for these two precious bundles we spawned

oh dear life things were going smooth
even over troubled waters
little did I know that would be only ripples
in the sea of life

And just when we were happy travelling
over the bridge over troubled waters
a tsunami sized wave rolled over us
Almost drowning us leaving us gasping and sputtering
A tsunami named Parkinson's

oh dear life things were going smooth
even over troubled waters
little did I know that would be only ripples
in the sea of life

The biggest wave to hit us and we are still
learning to swim, to survive, to persevere
to hope, to rebuild, to recreate
Though things will never be the same
we will survive we will not give up
