Never Stop Being YOU

Never stop caring about the little things in life
Never stop dreaming or give into strife 

Never stop building bridges that leads to better tomorrow
Never stop trying or give into sorrow 

Never stop feeling amazed at the beauty that surrounds you
Never stop hearing the music or give into the blues 

Never stop smiling and look forward to each new day
Never stop shining in your own special way

You are to me a very special sun…

You are to me a very special sun

That shines upon a world few ever see,

A world I’m shy to show to everyone,

That hides its urgent truth from even me.

Without your light it is a world of darkness;

Its heaven and its hell lie fast asleep.

With you as sole and sympathetic witness,

The words come forth from out my vasty deep.

And so I cannot be myself without you;

No one is whole without some loving friend.

There is a quiet joy in me about you

That lets me say what I need not defend.

Long may we serve each other to give light

To all the loveliness that haunts the night.
