A Little Love

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

This song was written for Dominic Sweetman, who gave me a challenge. He wanted a story, and I said I could write one, but not instead of a song. We decided on a story-song containing a broomstick, a happy smile, and a wheelbarrow. We agreed it turned out well, so I’m sharing it here. πŸ™‚

1. I used to ride my broomstick
Through the country and the town,
Laughing at the couples
And wearing a big frown.
A wheelbarrow of past regrets,
It followed me around.
The streets were paved with sorrow
For the love I never found.

2. Till one fine day a man appeared
With a brilliant, shining smile.
He asked, “Why do you look so sad?
Let’s sit and talk awhile.”
My wheelbarrow he filled with dreams
And lightened every mile.
On roads of possibility
We travel side by side.
Refrain:

3. He swept me off my broomstick,
And I don’t miss it at all.
My feet are in the clouds;
It doesn’t matter if I fall.
I wear a happy smile
As I laugh and have a ball.
My wheelbarrow is filled with love
I share with one and all.
Refrain: (Twice)

O isn’t it amazing
What a little love,
A little love,
A little love can do!

Refrain:
My heart is open, I see hope and
Sparkles of the truth.
O isn’t it amazing
What a little love,
A little love,
A little love can do!
