never gonna keep me down

Sing me no sad songs
when you learn of my sorrow
for they are today's
and may-be not tomorrow's

My voice may be weak
my smile quite thin
I need to know now
the joy that comes from within.

Though my heart is bleeding
happiness, however brief
is what it is needing
not reminders of grief

It's not bravery
or denial, or disrespect
it's determination, and hope
for what hope might bring next.

So tell me  a story
sing me a song
make me laugh
for the road I walk is long.

lets eat ice cream for breakfast,
because deep down I know
that this sadness can't last
and joy can again grow
