I spoke truths to deaf ears
painted pictures of butterfly wings
eagle journeys and unicorn mountains
I transcended my imagination
through my jump into the light to
bridge the gap between now and forever
I will lead - follow me
I will teach - listen to me
I will sing - harmonize with me
let go - hang on
let love - let hate
let laughter - let tears be remembered
in the Sumer of your life
