" Beautiful Boy"

Last edited Fri Jan 18, 2013, 10:31 AM - Edit history (1)

In part, this is for the Memory of the babies we lost so needlessly in Newtown. In part, it is for the children we still need to keep safe from harm. Our babies are our future. We need to keep them safe.

Close your eyes, have no fear.


They can change all of our lives as they grow. They can change our world if we let them.











Close your eyes
Have no fear
The monster's gone
He's on the run and your daddy's here

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way
It's getting better and better

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Out on the ocean sailing away
I can hardly wait
To see you come of age
But i guess we'll both just have to be patient
'cause it's a long way to go
A hard row to hoe
Yes it's a long way to go
But in the meantime

Before you cross the street
Take my hand
Life is what happens to you
While you're busy making other plans

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way
It's getting better and better

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Darling, darling, darling
Darling sean

1. Ah, these remind me of my child's life. On a tall ship, holding the wheel, in the surf, loving it.

A moving tribute to life and love.

Thanks, Sheshe, this is great.

3. I know the joy of the sea, freshwest...it is as invigorating, as it is soothing.

So very glad that your child could experience that awesome beauty. There is nothing better!

Peace

5. It's about all of that, and more Cha...

What I was also trying to point out was, that each and every child can come to age, that they can soar. If we keep them safe they can grow up and lead. As our President did. A beautiful child, so full of life, he became a man. He evolved into the best thing that has ever happened to this country. Our President.

The children are our future. They are the best, many of them are the brightest lights we have to lead our way, out of the darkness and into the light.

Twenty children can never ever reach their dreams. However, they may have changed the world in a way none of us ever thought. The focus on the NRA...let's hope we can make a difference for these children. For all of our children.

Before you go to sleep

Every day in every way
It's getting better and better

9. Yes, he and they

keep amazing me, too. Since 2007.. when I was in the embryonic stage of supporting Senator Obama~ Pretty much floored by now!

And, of course, cheerleading the whole way..

Thank you so much for adding such an awesome contribution to DU and our BOG, She!
