Jody May

10 Jan

Another lesson just the other day when the circus came to town

I sat and watched all the people with my little Jody May, she was staring at the ground

All the rides and all the fun and she couldn’t ride on a single one

When that circus came to town

Night fell before she asked if we could go

How long she’ll live in sorrow no one knows

All she wants to do is run and play

But how long until she walks, no one can say

She asked to go the very next day when the circus came to town

The longing look on her little face and she started to shut down

All the rides and all the fun and she cried as she watched everyone

When that circus came to town

She knows next year the circus is going to come back to town

I know she’ll want to go, without a doubt, so we’ll go and hang around

All the rides and all the fun but will the dirty work still be sadly done,

Will she make a joyful sound

When the night falls will she ask if we can go

Will I ever come to ease the pain she knows

All she wants to do is run and play

She may never walk the doctors said today

And the circus comes to town

And Jody May still cries when they shut down
