The Timeless Rocker

Story

Written in a moment of seller's remorse after parting with my rocking chair at a garage sale...

Lyrics

In the rocking chair just a baby fair, I sat and sang and held you to my breast
Oh so close and warm tucked into my arm, the tuneful lullabies put you to rest

As a year went by, such a painful cry, because you fell and skinned a toe or knee
Once again we’d climb for our special time, we’d rock ourselves a soothing melody

    You can hear the sounds of children, and mothers whispering into their ears
    Back and forth the creaky rocker has so much more to say than you can hear

After hours of play or at school all day, it’s hard to know when you have had enough
And though you barely fit, on my lap you sit, we hum and let the rocker do its stuff

Someone else is blessed, with a little rest, rocking back and forth in that chair
May their memory of a lifetime be as happy as the moments we spent there
    
    You can hear the sounds of children, and mothers whispering into their ears
    Back and forth the creaky rocker has so much more to say than you can hear
