"GIVE LIFE AND CHEER"

One Day While Sitting In The Park

I Learned A Lesson Strong

I Would See The Same Child Everyday

And Wonder What Was Wrong

 

Her Friends Would Always Run And Play

And Yell And Play Kick Ball

But She Would Only Sit And Cheer

But Never Join In At All

 

I Knew She Wanted To So Very Bad

Her Face Said It All

But Finally The Game Would Be Over

And She Never Kicked The Ball

 

But This Went On Forever

She Would Only Sit And Cheer

What Was The Reason For This

Was It Soley Out Of Fear

 

The Next Few Weeks She Wasn't There

I Wondered Where She'd Gone

I Hoped Everything Was Ok

And That Nothing Was Wrong

 

Then One Saturday Morning

I Heard The Childs Scream

Then A Ball Go Flying By

That She Had Kicked For Her Team

 

The Joy I Felt To See Her Play

The Smile From Ear To EAr

So I Took Over Her Usual Job

And I Begun To Cheer

 

Finally The Game Was Over

She Came And Thanked Me Dear

For Rooting For Her In The Game

For Yelling Out Loud A Cheer

 

She Explained She Never Played Before

That She Needed A New Heart

And Finally A MAtch Was Found

And Now Her Life Would Start

 

She Said She Would Never Forget

Her First Kick Ball GAme

And The Man Who Sat And Cheered For Her

Who Hadn't Even Known Her Name

 

I Also Would Never Forget That Day

In My Heart It Would Always Be

It Changed The Way I Felt Inside

It Helped Me To Really See

 

Without The New Heart She Had Received

She Never Would Have Played

Eventually Not Even Be Able To Cheer

She Would Be Gone In Everyway

 

She Taught Me To Realise Tha When I Die

I Can Do Just The Same

Like The Boy Who Gave Her A New Heart

I CAn Get People In The Game

 

I Can Give So Many Gifts Away

Whenever Its My Time To Go

Thank GodFor This Little Girl

Who Taught Me What I'm Glad I Know

 

So Now Im Not Even Scared To Die

Cause I Know My Life Will Still Be

And I Also Hope You Learned A Lesson

You'll Never Be Saying Goodbye

 

For You'll Be Living On In Lives Of Others

And Drying MAny TEars

And Helping Many Play The Game

While In The Sky You'll Cheer
