MY HEART………….. me
NEARER TO MY HEART….. my child
SETTING: Every Day
MY HEART: What A Day!
There was no rest for my weary soul.
Just no stopping!
Up at sunrise, dressing you, and feeding you
And sending you out the door.
NEARER TO MY HEART:What A Day!
Did you see the sunrise?
Did you hear the music?
MY HEART: I know it was all there,
But in the rush…..
I guess I missed it.
We almost missed the bus….!
Then, I knew I would not stop….
So I had a Grande DARK ROAST.
I went out with my list.
NEARER TO MY HEART: I knew you were there all the time.
And when I came home, there you were…
MY HEART: Yes, and did you see the groceries on the kitchen floor?
Did you know that tonight was your prom?
Did you know I would be there too, watching you from
Across the room, with a date of my own?
NEARER TO MY HEART: Aren’t you always there?
MY HEART: I wish I could be….
But there are dishes to wash, and laundry….
But You… did you have fun at your prom?
I saw you on the dance floor…
Laying all stretched out.
Were you as tired as I was by that time of day?
NEARER TO MY HEART: I found that by laying down and stretching out,
I could hear AND feel the music so well!
Right to my heart.
MY HEART: Home at last…
Look at us,
We’re trippity tripping down the hall to our beds.
NEARER TO MY HEART: Wasn’t it the loveliest day?
Don’t you just wish every day was like this?
(you, so near to my heart, should always have the last word.)
