I Know You
   More than the Meaning
    I Know the True You
          I Can Feel You
        I Can Sense You
 More than the Seeming
          I Can See You
          Smiling Child
 
        Ashes to Ashes
         You’ll Never
            Fall Down
 
 
Oh smiling child
Where is the swing
Where you would make believe
That you were flying
No fear of dying
'Cause they would give you wings
To fly forever
To wherever
Smiling children go
 
Oh smiling child
Where is the sweet smell
That always tells of home
That they would use to fell
Your worried heart
Those special treats
That always brought
Tender loving care
 
Oh smiling child
Where is the safe place
The soft embrace
Where as a babe you laid
The magic place
Where they would fix any hurt
With just a kiss
And a Band-Aid
 
Oh smiling child
I bet they missed you
After you flew away
That loving couple
Who waited for your return each day
 
Oh smiling child
You had barely left when you landed
Upon that sacred shore
Where two became one
With hopes of making more
 
And then it happened
But you were not prepared
Even though you were aware
 
Oh smiling child
I know you missed the garden
Where you used to run and play
And the flowers
That used to fill your days
Carefully tended are they
The memories of yesterday
 
Oh smiling child
I know you missed the loving couple
That watched you fly away
Ever since He gave them wings
To fly forever
Up wherever
Smiling children go
When he calls them home
 
Oh smiling child
I know you miss them
Now that they have flown away
And you wish
They could have met
What is in your arms today
So small and lovely
This precious child
Smiling up at you
 
Oh smiling child
The time has come to prepare the safe place
A soft embrace
Where this babe will lay
The magic place
Where you will fix any hurt
With just a kiss
And a Band-Aid
 
Oh smiling child
The time has come to fill the air
With the sweet smell of home
That you will use to fell
This child’s worried heart
Those special treats
That will bring
Tender loving care
 
Oh smiling child
The time has come to build the swing
Where this child will make believe
That they are flying
No fear of dying
'Cause you will give them wings
To fly forever
Though you never
Want them to go
This smiling child
 
For every ending
We owe a new beginning
 
Take comfort smiling child
For in the Fathers grace
We all can find our way back home
To the place
Where smiling children go
