about

Some children struggle to accomplish things that it seems most of their peers can do easily. They may have difficulty with learning, speaking, playing, or moving. They may have difficulty understanding their emotions or following social customs. These children (and I know this as a parent with personal experience) bring something wonderful to the world. They show us what is truly precious and beautiful.

lyrics

Some children stand on mountains high
reaching peaks up in the sky.
But, those who cannot climb are gems in valleys.
And the poet of life, found in the smiles
of children that cannot climb,
who show us the sacred things in time.
And the ravens fly, and the lilies grow,
and the poetry moves in the valleys, valleys low.

Some children struggle with their words,
and to learn from things they heard.
But, when they laugh it fills the world with music.
And the poet of life speaks through a child
that struggles to understand,
whose laughter is music for our land.
And the ravens fly, and the lilies grow,
and the poetry moves in the valleys, valleys low.

The shining trophies may belong
to the skillful and the strong.
But precious are the hands that never hold them.
And the poet of life mystically works
through differently abled hands
to touch us with something very grand.
And the ravens fly, and the lilies grow,
and the poetry moves in the valleys, valleys low.

Now, hear the poet, hear the song.
Feel the rhythm move along.
Now, hear the child singing in the valley.
And the poet of life moves in the wind;
it’s found in a humble place,
and gives us a wonder to embrace.
And the ravens fly, and the lilies grow,
and the poetry moves in the valleys, valleys low.
