For you


This is for you
Yes you, over there,
You, the one who’s brushing her hair
And you on the street
And you in the car
And you who’s wishing upon that star
For the boy with the truck
For the man with hat
For the player who’s picking up his bat
For the woman who cries
For the soldier who dies
For the child who struggles,
For the person who tries
This is for you
All who care
For the kind, and the humble,
The ones who dare
To live and work,
To dream and hope,
To keep on moving,
To strive, to cope
To all those unnoticed
Who don’t despair,
Who continue to give,
Who continue to share,
This is yours,
It’s long overdue
It’s a simple, short, heartfelt:
Thank you
