Go on, you know you want to
witty wonderful wearied souls
Rest your head upon my lap
Rest your eyes
Rest your dreams upon my hands
I shall guide thee to other far stretched lands.
Sleep, dear, sleep and weep no more
Reveal your heart to that of pure,
Close your eyes and dream a dream
Imagine, just imagine, how your perfect world would seem.
I shall be your muse for only you to use
And nothing that you ask of me shall I refuse.
So take a step and take my hand
Share with me, for I’ll understand,
grant your wishes, rise your spirits, give you ease,
Take my hand and make a stand.
Just, one thing I ask of you:
when you leave, as I’m sure you’ll do,
don’t stop, never stop. Keep going,
keep standing, keep rising, keep smiling.
For I know I will,
standing by your side still,
I will keep smiling alongside you,
smiling cheering happy and content.
on your journey on the rise
where you’ll see everything with new eyes,
and when you reach the summit,
when you see all there is to see
Just promise me this:
Promise you’ll remember me.
