Please don't cry child,
it's not so bad.
Have the skies crumbled above you?
Are the winds rushing and mad?
Have the seas risen far too high?
Has the ground broken away?
Have all the flowers wilted?
And can you not make the memories stay?
Please don't cry child, and do not be sad.
Soon everything that is good
Will wipe out anything that is bad.
So, please, child, smile, or even just try.
And come into my arms, and please
don't cry.
