A long silence.
Audiences waiting, breath bated…
What will her next reprise hold?
A dashing line, spoken bold,
A gentle word, spun with gold…?
Her breath is caught, she starts to sing
…and all that wait can hear the ring
the treasure found so deep inside
that finally, she no longer hides.
The song concludes with a final note
that rings through the air, and take note,
for the girl who finally let open her mouth
has learned to let the sound come out
with joy and pleasure she now sings for you,
in hopes this song will move you, too.
Sing out! Good friends, in all you do.
In the car, in your home, and on the street, too.
You never know how the joy can spread
or when a spirited journey may be led.
For those who by example show
the world around them how to grow
through smiles and laughs and gleeful notes
– they teach us to live our lives afloat –
We leap! and dance upon a whim,
and spend less time feeling grim
because when one is able to express
the feelings they have held repressed
the heart grows light,
the mind more calm,
and one realizes all along,
that all that was needed
was to simply…
And sing a song.
(Be gleeful, and share your joy!)
