Did You Ever

Did you ever walk in sunshine, following a rain
Did you ever hold a loved one when you knew they were in pain
Did you ever smile at someone just because you could
Did you ever hug a little child when you told them they'd been good

Did you ever sit before a fire on a cold December day
Did you ever step inside a book and the words took you away
Did you ever dream of going where you'd never been before
Did you ever wander barefoot along the oceans shore

Did you ever muse about what happened to your childhood friends
Did you ever watch a rainbow and wonder where it ends
Did you ever tell a little fib to protect another s pride
Did you ever watch your flag go by and your heart swell up inside

Did you ever wear a happy face while choking back a tear
Did you ever hold a puppy while he nibbled on your ear
Did you ever pick some flowers and give them to your mom
Did you ever think back on the night when you went to your prom

Did you ever get a heartfelt thanks for something that you did
Did you ever taste the innocence of your first love as a kid
Did you ever doze during a show and not know how it ends
Did you ever wish for something, not for you, but for a friend

Did you ever watch a sunset as it filtered through the trees
Did you ever hold another s hand to diminish their unease
Did you ever sort your memories, keeping just the best
If you did, you found your life, like mine, has been truly blessed
