Only You can Do It

Rock me and roll me

Ever so gently

Make me believe

That sweet dreams are real

Rock me and roll me

Ever so gently

Kiss away the fears

Hold me so when I dream at night

Nightmares don’t scare me

Rock me and roll me

Ever so gently

And help me to believe

That there is still hope

Show me that fear

Is nothing more

Than mist in the air

Give me the hope

For a new tomorrow

Rock me and roll me

Ever so gently

So I can go forth

And smile toward a new day

Rock me and roll me

All through the night

Let’s blast some rock tunes real loud

So you can rock me and roll me

Like a baby tonight

Mmmmm...Rasma - YOUR rocking and rolling has soothed and calmed me!

How lucky you are to have someone to give you strength when you are weak and to lift you up when you are down..

Or just to hold you!

That in itself is a 'rock and roll' moment!

Have a wonderful Sunday, my friend!
