So goodnight moon and goodnight you
When you’re all that I think about
All that I dream about
How’d I ever breathe without
A goodnight kiss from goodnight you
The kind of hope they all talk about
The kind of feeling we sing about
Sit in our bedroom and read aloud
Like a passage from goodnight moon
Oh goodnight moon
And there you were
I saw my Juliet come graceful down the stairs
It’s hard to miss the way her eyes light up the room and steal the air
For some of you that might be a painful reminder. I know what that feels like. Yea, you know your alive but why do I have to go and shove it in your face? It’s not a happy thought to know that you’re alive… Am I right?… So then why am I reminding you that you’re alive? Because even if you don’t…
To give it all, sacrifice everything, and throw all thoughts of yourself out the window.
To do all you can to make somebody smile, to make their day. Even if it’s just one person.
To not care about how you get there, not care about the consequences.
To always make time for someone who you’re close to. To hear everything they have to say, and never judge them. To care about everything they are and do, and never quit caring.
To never expect anything in return, and never break before them. To be the strong one for them. To not expect a compliment, to not hope for a reward, and never plan for them to appreciate your friendship.
To be entirely selfless and devote yourself to the ones you love.
To be that one person. That one they’ll never forget, just because you were there. Just because you loved them unconditionally. Because you cared and scarified.
Because you showed them a love, that the world could not fathom.
This is what I strive to be. This is what I challenge you to be as well.
Help the world remember, what they have forgotten.
