My Parents Always Tell Me
My parents always tell me to enjoy life,
To laugh and to love.
They tell me to forget all strife,
And to be free and to fly like a dove.
My parents always tell me to pick the flowers in the fields,
And to jump with joy.
They tell me to disarm my shields,
And to disregard everything that might annoy.
My parents always tell me to seize the day,
To run around,
And to forget the skies that might be gray.
To stop and listen to nature’s stunning sounds.
Now that I think about it, my parents are right.
This is the time to enjoy being young.
I am starting to look at things in a whole new light,
And to enjoy mother nature’s beauty that I am among.
