“Even in the Details”

I mentioned I was working on a poem/song for my daughter, Lucy… I finished it tonight:

two weeks late but she didn’t care

her name means light

she’s got a bow in her hair

don’t say good night to me 

she says

don’t say good night to me

 

lets dance a little longer

sing a little louder

laugh a little harder

then you’ll see

yes

you’ll see

 

that life is beautiful

even in the details

yes

even in the details

 

drama means nothing 

unless there’s a stage

so watch me

come closer

I’ll blow you away

 

the secret is hiding

so lets take a look

The green sheep we’re finding

at the end of the book

 

Nurture perfection

or temper ensues

Harness the passion

releases the hues

 

eternity was waiting

for lucy my boo

to spin my heart over

He’s crazy bout you

 

so dance a little longer

sing a little louder

laugh a little harder

then you’ll see

yes

you’ll see

 

that life is beautiful

even in the details

yes

even in the details
