Ala Gypsy: Take a child by the hand



Take A Child By The Hand

Take a child by the hand,and show him the way
Lead a child each morning,into a beautiful day
Take a child by the mind,and give him the strength
To fight every challenge,and go to great lengths


Take a child by the soul,and let God be known
It is by his mighty grace,that so big they have grown
Take a child by his sight,and show him wonders galore
Teach him curiosity,and the need to explore


Take a child by his smile,so beautiful and sweet
And tell him of all,the friends he will meet
Take a child by his wonder,of the life all around
Let him savor each flavor,and hear each new sound


Take a child by his dreams,and say it's all-right
To follow those dreams,as far as he might
Take a child by the heart,and teach them to love
For there is no greater gift,from our creator above


And after your child has grown
and alone they now stand
Watch and enjoy as they take
their own child by the hand

Chamara, that is very, very sweet and we all need to be reminded of this. I'm intrigued by the Augusta, Maine label. I grew up an hour and a half from there!

Hi ya, on the subject of children i just wanted to let you now in person so to speak, that i have put a link to my daughter Dazy's new soon to be released e.p she came out of the recording studio in London yesterday so it is hot off the press, i hope you can get to hear it "dont be late" will be the first single from HIS LOST BOYS, keep an eye out for then whilst the process in London is slow as competition is fierce, i have a good feeling that they can go as far as they want to with all of this...hope you are well speak soon stepne x
