Heartsong

I have a song, deep in my heart,

And only I can hear it.

If I close my eyes and sit very still

It is so easy to listen to my song.

When my eyes are open and

I am so busy and moving and busy,

If I take time and listen very hard,

I can still hear my Heartsong.

It makes me feel happy.

Happier than ever.

Happier than everywhere

And everything and everyone

In the whole wide world

Happy like thinking about Going to Heaven when I die.


My Heartsong sounds like this:

I love you!

I love you!

How happy you can be!

How happy you can make

The whole world be!

And sometimes it's other

Tunes and words, too,

But it always sings the Same special feeling to me.

It makes me think of Jamie, and Katie and Stevie,

And other wonderful things.

This is my special song.

But do you know what?

All people have a special song Inside their hearts!

Everyone in the show wide world Has a special Heartsong.

If you believe in magical, musical hearts,

And if you believe you can be happy,

Then you, too, will hear your song.
