THE STRINGS

LET THE SOUND

FLOW

OUT GOES MY

HEART

WITH VISIONS

LONG GONE

AND

WE RAISE OUR

KIDS WITH

HOPE

WE DO ALL

WE CAN

FOR THEM

WE LET THEM

WALK OUT

THE DOOR

WHEN OLDER

FOR THEIR

LIFE TO GROW

WITH ALL

WE TEACH

AND PREACH

AND GUIDE

AND PROTECT

WE LET THEIR

WINGS

TAKE THEM

WHERE IT WILL

GO

TELLING THEM

IF THEY

EVER NEED

US WE ARE

RIGHT HERE

WE HOPE

FOR THEM

ALL WILL BE

WELL

AND GREAT

AND GOOD

AND KNOW

ITS A BIG

UNKNOWN

WHEN WE

LET THEM GO

LIKE A BUTTERFLY

AND LOVE

CARRIES

IN OUR HEARTS

EVERY BEAT

EVERY SECOND

EVERY HUG

EVERY THOUGHT

EVERY LITTLE

THING

AND SOMETIMES

TEARS WILL

FALL

WITH THE WINGS

AND WE HAVE

TO BE

WHAT WE

CAN

IN A WAY

THEY LET US IN

OR NOT

HOPE THEY

TURN OUT OK

TIME

...

THE ENDLESS

CYCLE OF LIFE

WITH EACH

SEASON

WE GREET IT

FROM THE DAY

WE ALL ARE

BORN

TO THE SECOND

THAT

ITS BACK

TO THE DUST

AND ALL THAT

IS INBETWEEN

WE

CHERISH

EVERY LAUGH

EVERY SMILE

EVERY TEAR

EVERY HURT

EVERY LITTLE THING

AND WHEN ITS GONE

WE SIT HERE

AND HOLD

THE MEMORIES

LIKE A TREASURE

KNOWING

THEY ARE OK

WHERE EVER THEY ARE

FOR THAT IS

ALL WE HAVE

TO

BELIEVE

TO KEEP

SAFE

THE FINGERS

MOVE

OVER THE STRINGS

AND THE SOUND

RINGS

OUT LOUD

OVER AND OVER

EACH MOTHER

EACH FATHER

EACH CHILD

KNOWS

WE ALL KNOW

ONE WAY OR

ANOTHER

OUR HEARTS

SOMETIMES

BLEED

AND ARE WOUNDED

SOMETIMES

HEALED

SOMETIMES

FEAR

SETS IN

SOMETIMES

ITS REAL

SOMETIMES

ITS NOT

ITS BECAUSE

WE LOVE

WITH ALL

OUR BEING

THAT KEEPS

THE WORLD

GOING

ON

AND WE ALL

FIGHT FOR

THAT FREEDOM

RIGHT

IN OUR OWN

WAYS

WHEN ITS

THREATENED

AND

RIPPED RIGHT OUT

FROM US

WE SCREAM

WE SHOUT

WE CRY

OUT LOUD

KNOWING

WHEN THAT

SECOND

COMES

AND

THERE IS NO

WAY TO

SAY

HEY DON’T GO

STAY

WE FIND

WAYS TO DEAL

WITH IT

SOME DAYS

ITS HARDER THAN

OTHERS

SOMETIMES

WE NEED THAT

UP LIFTING

SPIRIT

TO GUIDE US

THAT ALL WILL

BE OK

WHEN ALL AROUND

US

THERE IS NOTHING

TO GIVE

THAT HOPE

THATS WHEN

WE HAVE

TO RELY ON

FAITH

AND

LET IT ALL OUT

FOR ONLY

TIME

WILL

TELL...

AND IN

THEM OUR

HEARTS GO

AND

IN OUR HEARTS

WE HOLD

THEM

FOREVER

THERE.

KISSING

THE SUN

AND TEARS FALL

AS I

SIT AND

WAIT

WITH DREAMS

ON THE

WIND

AND

LET THE WINGS

OF ANGELS

FLY

TO GUIDE

AND PROTECT

WHERE

I CAN’T BE.
