A Frightened Girl
Tune: Leader of the Band (Dan Fogelberg)
A frightened girl, alone and scared
Sitting on her bed.
Her mother comes to comfort her
A story to be read.
She longs to hear of happiness
The book is opened up with care.
To a place that’s filled with joy and love
For everyone to share.
The love we have is felt by all
In so many different ways.
Pages turn as characters
Blend into blue and gray.
The friendships here are very rare
A treasure to behold.
And don’t forget behind each one
There’s a story to be told.
Quiet times are found there
In the setting of the sun.
There’s a whisper in the pine trees of
The things that have been done.
There are those who learned to laugh there,
And those who learned to cry.
Tapawingo is this special place
Where friendships never die.
The story is now over
The last page has been turned.
She sits there just reflecting on
All the lessons she has learned.
When the winter months have ended,
And the summer months draw near.
The girl we know will travel to
The place we all hold dear.
