I’ve put away my childhood fears
Remembering those tender years
There are so many ways I fall
One day I shan’t get up at all !
I try so hard to walk erect
It is the pose that I select
Lord, how I wish I had the strength
To live my life to its full length.
It’s what I have been working for,
To tread the stairs or walk the floor
Oh, what a pleasure it would be
To dance once more in victory !
