How Susan Hayward's movie roles related to my life

The Lady, The Legend:
Susan Hayward
On Her Centennial Year.

When I really noticed her
It was at the start
Of her role as Jane Froman
in With A Song In My Heart.

From that time on
In happiness or sorrow
Susie made sure that
I'll (not) Cry Tomorrow.

As The President's Lady
She fit Andrew fine
But she could have played his role
Her ambition was like mine.

Susie had a strength
Rarely seen in gals you meet
She went for what she wanted
Like the designer in Back Street.

Ambitious, yes, she was
But she showed time and again
That she could be a homebody
As she was in Lusty Men.

There were some minor films
Till being noticed in Beau Geste
After that, no stopping Sue
Who quickly showed her best.

Like the gal she played in Ada
She went right to the top
But unlike her contemporaries
No way could she be stopped.

Four Oscar nominations
Till I Want To Live
And on the fifth they gave her
The best they had to give.

She did Climb the Highest Mountain
But more films were yet to come
I counted almost sixty
A most impressive sum.

These days, in Stolen Hours
I sit at the TV
Watching all her films
That mean so much to me.

She was a Woman Obsessed
And as long as films survive
The redhead will be with us
She'll always be alive.

With much love and thanks to
one of the greats on June 30th, 2017,
her 100th birthday.
