My family was re-reading some children's books last night, and I stumbled across this poem that made me so happy inside. It's by Debby Boone.
Attention, all children! Now hear what I say:
Make sure that you've done enough singing today!
You've heard the old saying 'bout an apple a day
Well, singing can help in a different sort of way.
'Cause singing makes you feel really good deep inside,
So good that you'll smile and get all google-eyed.
You don't need a piano or need a great voice,
All you need is a song (and that's a matter of choice)
Sing songs that are happy, sing songs that are fun
Sing songs that you know, (or just write yourself one)
All children the world over: It's my wish and my prayer
That you sing more and more till your songs fill the air!
