Sing - Poem by Aris Williams

Sing, sweet one, sing,

Let your voice ring,

Sing very loud,

And sing very proud,

Until you can sing no longer,

Sing for me child,

Sing all the while,

For your voice is a sign,

For all life to shine,

Until your lovely call falters,

And the day it dies,

The day you won't rise,

The day a new song,

Shall come not so long,

From another young soul,

To take your place,

Until you leave no trace,

That is the day,

On which you will lay,

As another shall sing your song.
