Play Your Song Proudly




If you're reading to find a truth, wipe your eyes from the sleep
Sit up straighter, remove the tension from your spine
Open the curtain and let the sunlight hit your eyes, focus
Listen to your heartbeat, strong and steady,
This is your song with you since birth, beats thrumming
A dance of joy for your mother, smile of pride for your father
It tells of the difference you find in this world of time
Passing to the beat of you, your unique rhythm
Some will know when you leave, for we all must leave
That you were a miracle, magical beyond understanding
Some will think of you with love, for the song you sang
Spells of passion play, none other can perform
Gods of your making will cry for their lose, your belief
As you move to the next stage Playing your song.
