When you find your life spinning out of control

With a need to strengthen heart, spirit and soul

See grand-children are dyeing,  instead of living

Failing cells a genetic defeat, I'll stop the killing

This syndrome they call Hurlers, version MPS-1 I write to advise, alert all and to inform everyone Their prayers are needed for the future of earth Arrogance and greed must replace them with mirth Believe in God's Heaven, your wishes will soar, to be heard by family inside heaven's door. Tell grandpa and grandma, my daughter, your son of raising your children in the Florida sun. The Great Spirit will listen, to the words that you speak and judge from your heart, if your spirit is weak. He will fill heart and spirit to carry the fight, through the darkness ahead, trust in the light For peace in the darkness, speak with your friends, know wisdom and guidance, will be what he sends Not fearing the darkness, enter it strong praying his answer will come with a song. Your wishes will soar to the heavens above, through family and friends about the one that you love. I'm not a prophet, seer or fool, just a man who lives by this earthly rule . Children are treasures, as I speak to the sky that they should enjoy life, long after I die. If wishes were horses, beggars would ride When prayers are answered, your children will thrive.
