For Elena

While there's still light between the earth and the sky,
I'll tell of what I know is in your heart.
Forgive me if I fail you with these words of mine,
Some thoughts inked on paper is all they are.

But you...

You hear the music of every single day.
And each one holds it's very own song.
You dance with joy around the moments in your life,
And make the day to come and dance along
With you.

I hope you never stop hearing the music.
I hope your feet never hold still.
Don't stop singing the notes within your heart,
Sing it to the world and make it feel
Your joy.

You see beauty that every second holds.
Each moment is like a sacred work of art.
You paint your world the color of your soul,
And take the time to help us see it too
With you.

I pray you never stop seeing the beauty,
I pray you you never let that go.
Don't stop living the art of what you see
Share it with us all and make us know
Your heart.
