I Hope You Dance

Tatum 
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger




May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid life ever leave you empty handed




I hope you still feel small 
When you stand beside the ocean



Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance



And when you get the chance to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance







I hope you dance!
