Little Raiya

(Dave Shiflett)

A song for my grandaughter Raiya
Rise and smile little Raiya
The whole world’s been waiting for you
The stars way up high can finally shine
The cow might jump over the moon
The beautiful rose in the meadow
Can shake off the cold winter’s snow
You’ve got a long road to travel
But you'll find the best way to go

There will be times when the sun will not shine
Just laugh out loud, make friends with the clouds
There will be days when the joy stays away
But good things return, that much I have learned

So rise and smile little Raiya
The whole world's been waiting for you
Love is the prize, may your precious eyes
See new worlds that we've never seen
