My daughter wrote and sang this song to me tonight because I have been going through a rough time. She made me so happy….please read the lyrics they will make you smile. Oh and this is a Chine Colle print, which means I pressed tissue paper into the print, then I hand coloured over the paper. Then I held it up to the light to photograph it.
“Press On” (A song for my Mum) By 9 year old Jade
Sometimes life is harder then it seems
You feel you’re walking up a stream,
But the current tries to push you away.
In the dark,
A black cloud hovers over your heart,
You need somebody to help you,
But I know what will get you through.
You just gotta Press On!
Even when times are tough!
Just gotta press on!
Even when times are rough!
You, just, gotta press on……………………
Life is like a box of chocolates,
You don’t know what to expect.
Or if you’re playing a game of tennis
You have to make it over the net.
You’re very good at art,
But sometimes you’re in the dark.
Sometimes you need to be shown the way,
To help you get through the day…….
At times you feel sad,
And at times you’re a little mad,
But it won’t turn bad…
Cuz, now I know you will press on!!!!!!!!!!!!
