Ready Set Run

How many journeys can you take

How many discoveries can you make

Leaving magic in your wake

Before the screen door slams

How far will you let yourself go

How much joy will you allow yourself to show

Meeting new friends with every hello

Before the screen door slams

How much freedom can you feel

How much curiosity will you reveal

Enjoying each moment like a favorite meal

Before the screen door slams

How many strings of how many kites

Will you grasp with all your might

As you let your heart take flight

Before the screen door slams
