I HOPE THAT YOU CAN DANCE





THE CHILD WITHIN

May you always keep the child within
And retain your sense of wonder
As you stand beside the mighty ocean,
When you hear the rolling thunder
I hope your heart always rejoices
To smell the grass newly mown,
To see the tiny germinated plant
From the seeds that you have sown.

May it always touch your soul
To feel another’s care,
To share a distant memory
And know that they were there.
I hope you enjoy the seasons
As they change from year to year,
Rain filled stormy nights
And mornings crisp and clear

The daffodils in springtime,
The rose’s sweet perfume
Church bells ringing ~
A smiling bride and groom.
May you always walk in sunshine
And lend a helping hand
To those whose life has changed
From the way they had it planned.

May you always keep the child within
And laugh and play and sing.
May you always have the strength
For whatever life may bring
I wish you love and happiness
And courage to take a chance,
And when the music plays for you
I hope that you can dance.
