It will happen
There will be flowers
There will be daisies
And a little boy will lie down in them and laugh and laugh and laugh
And the world will be bright yellow
And happy
And he will close his eyes and feel the sun gently warm his face
And he will feel the cool breeze through the flowers
Singing a sweet song of spring
And then he will dance
A little boy's dance of joy
Around and around and around he will dance
Until he falls, exhausted, back into the flowers
And it will be over
The long night of darkness will be over

Come laugh with me
Come dance with me
Love with me the possibility of new life
New love
Hug me like you've never hugged before
And then sit and cry with me the tears of a thousand sorrows
We alone will understand our tears
Or that only from such deep sorrow could come such wondrous joy

And we shall dance!
Oh, how we shall dance!

And they shall watch us dance
Let them point and laugh
Let them say we've lost whatever sense we ever had
For no one now can ever stop our dancing
Not with furrowed brows
Not with scowling faces
Not with nasty stares
We've had enough of nasty stares

So, don't stay seated on the ground
Joy is wasted, if not shared
And, if I cannot share my joy, I'll simply burst into a thousand happy pieces

Come.....take my hand

This is our time to dance!!!!

I'm healing now, and I wasn't sure I would.

It is indeed! I love the image of the boy dancing in the flowers. So very cool.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.

I like it a lot, Bobby. It says a lot for the little boy in us.

dear bobby,
this is pure.
thanks for sharing your joy!
i can still feel it, years later.
sure i'll dance with you.

it's rainy grey outside,
and i am rolling in yellow flowers,
basking in golden sunshine, smiling.
