SHE KNOWS JUST WHAT TO SAY

Her dream had just been shattered…she thought her life was through…

she ran to her mother crying…unsure what she should do.

 

Her mother welcomed her into her arms…she knew what she would say.

She’d say whatever happens in life…do not put your dreams away.

 

She’d say sometimes dreams are broken…as life thunders along

but your heart is reparable…it is resolute and pure…and strong.

 

She’d say yes this one dream’s broken…but this I know is true…

You are still a dreamer….and the next dream begins with you….

 

She’d say though it is very sad…this latest dream is gone

you will soon create another dream and your heart will lead you on…

 

She’d say I will be here to hold you…when any dream of yours comes true…

and if any dream should fail…I’ll be here to hold you too….

 

Yes, she was ready with the answers…she knew just what to say…

but that was for another moment…another time…another day…

 

For in this moment she said nothing…there’s a simple reason why…

 

a mother knows that sometimes…a daughter needs to cry.
