Name of Song: The Magic Barbara Hershey

She permeated her magic into movies,
She made her being felt by those around,
She didn’t use any tricks or unusual gimmicks,
Just being herself and holding to it no matter what.

Chorus
She has a smoothness in her movement through many emotions,
She made it as natural as breathing in, and breathing out,
She can allow another to be whatever they need to be,
And then keep taking the emotions higher and higher and higher.

She can also drop all of a sudden into desperation,
Then feel the need to have you laughing along with her,
Or feel the sudden urge to share in what she was crying about,
Then feel inspired to achieve the goal she decided upon.

If you want to see her do this watch her movie “Beaches”,
With her co-star Bette who’s just as good as her,
There is a reason that this movie is such a classic,
Those two move you through life’s emotions like rarely done.

There is another movie she made under Mario Kassar,
About a long forgotten tribe of peaceful men,
She made an ethereal space around these special people,
And took the time to speak and be like one of them.

The magic that she creates whenever she speaks her mind,
Is what any true artist will strive for in their chosen form,
She puts herself on the line and generates her own life force,
While making sure the appropriate reality is always there.

She can do this for herself and whomever she’s acting with,
I’m sure a pleasure to work with for directors and actors alike,
Her brand of who she is brings pleasure to those who experience her,
She gives a future hope that artists are famous for.

Chorus
She has a smoothness in her movement through many emotions,
She makes it as natural as breathing in, and breathing out,
She can allow another to be whatever they need to be,
And then keep taking the emotions higher and higher and higher.
