Travel the world and you'll surely come to see
Ev'rything there is a part of you and me
Never let doubt put you in a spin
Ev'rything out is a part of in
Ev'rything wants you complete as you can be.
We each are meant to share our song
You'll find it sang within you all along
Small but strong.
Imagine that world stretching far and wide
Needing that song that you hold inside
Needing your gift to complete a grand design
Offer your gift to the world
And watch it shine.

I have a book in my collection of
"Julie Andrews Collection of Poems, Songs and Lullabies." Its first edition was in 2009 and I think I have had it for as long. I love the poems inside and when I remember that it is there, I take it off the bookshelf and start rereading them.
So, there I was, dusting off the bookshelf again, and I picked up my copy. It had been a while and it stopped me in mid swipe. I went to sit down in my favorite corner, to start reading, dusting forgotten for the time being. I had already put the kettle on as it was time for a cup of tea, and a good read. The dusting can wait don't you think?
I picked this piece for my post today. I also was curious about the title and truthfully I don't remember the story, but sometimes I just need to give the old brain box a dusting too. Always good to get that refresher. The link in red lettering above will take you to a review of Simeon's Song.
