"the greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love and be loved in return." -MOULIN ROUGE (song lyrics)

I never want to see you fall down.
When you scrape your knee, don't frown.
You can wipe it off and be strong.
When you're feeling sad, I'll hold you anytime.
Darling you're too young to cry like this.

Smile, it will last longer.
Laugh, you'll feel better.
Because life is short and you got to make it last.
Go on and smile.

I know that life is a struggle.
But darling you're only eight, what can you do?
Just hold your mama's hand and get through it with her.
Because she really needs you there more than you know.

Smile, it might help you out.
Laugh, because you know you want to.
Because life is meant to cherrish.
Don't waste it on tears, have no fears, because you know your dad would want you to smile.
So go on and smile.

Because my little cousin I got your back.
I'm always going to be there by your side.
Go on and smile.

Yeah you can smile!

My little cousin, Goldie, is eight and just recently lost her father. He was shot and he died. Life is very hard for her and her mom. I give many prayers for her and her mom. I love you Goldie, stay strong.
