The light is fading from the cloudy sky
And sitting in this shady spot I fear,
That as tears drop and I begin to cry
No one but you will ever find me here.
When all the universe is gone awry
And every smiling face becomes a leer,
I'll find my throat is parched and eyes are dry;
I know I'll find you whisp'ring in my ear.
A friendly face from you is what I need
And baby steps to happiness from there;
The things I cannot change by word or deed
Remaining still, but if I can I'll dare.
A mighty oak grows from a tiny seed,
My world is changing as I watch and stare.
