I have come across this song from Rascal Flatts and have been so inspired by this ever since. The melody is wonderful, laid back and soothing. And the lyrics - heartwarming, it makes want to cry.



These are the words that make this song a perfect wish in melody - for the ones we love.

My Wish
by Rascal Flatts

I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you want to go,
And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,

But more than anything, more than anything,

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

I hope you never look back, but ya never forget,

All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
And you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
And you always give more than you take.

But more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,

Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

This is my wish

I hope you know somebody loves you
May all your dreams stay big

This song was written by Jeffrey Steele & Steve Robson and dedicated to Jeffrey's youngest daughter, Justine. One day, she asked Jeffrey how come he has never written a song for her when he already had written for her other siblings. So, on that day, Jeffrey started writing a song about how he hopes "Justine finds things in her life that make her happy and bring her joy" (full story here).

This song has come about because of a father's love for her daughter and how he wishes that she finds joy and fulfillment in this life by deciding on her own using the wisdom she has gathered through the years and the values that her parents has taught her. This song tells about perseverance - to keep on walking till you find the window when doors have closed. To be optimistic in times of distress and to find a chance to help others in need.

I am sure these are the same wishes of all parents around the world – to see their children happy in this sometimes complicated and chaotic world.

Thanks to the writers of this song and to Rascal Flatts for giving birth to this brilliant ensemble of words and harmony.This is a song that I also wish to dedicate to my future children. ♥
