Tenderly do eyelids open,
viewing softly sunlight rays.
Sweetly hearing birdsong singing …
… “do go gently through the day”.
Do go gently through the day.
Do your best but open stay,
Heedlessly of come what may
Love and laughter your mainstay.
Strength need not be rough or rude
A gentle hand does more,
Courage comes to those who care
Opening a closed mind’s door.
Please go gently through the day
weathering life’s storms,
endless strength comes from the heart
when peace becomes the norm.
