So Smile (For Emily Gerstein)

©2009 Dave Jay Gerstein

Held you in my arms the day you were born

Thirteen years didn’t take too long

But all we ever really have is now

And standing here with you I feel so proud

So smile

Your “Rock Star Birthday” and my backstage pass

Memories forever meant to last

Watching you grow up and dance and sing

Designed to go from your mind and then to bring

A smile; you know I love ya

And I’ll always be thinking of ya

While I can’t always be here with ya

Take this in, Em

If there’s one thing I wanna give ya It’s a smile

Every family has got its way

Of honoring its kin on a special day

So all our hearts they beat for you tonight

To top it off and make it all just right

We smile; you know we love ya

And I’ll always be thinking of ya

While we can’t always be here with ya

Take this in, Em

If there’s one thing we wanna give ya It’s a smile

Can’t wait for what the future has in store

If I think about it I just want more, more, more, more, more

So smile and know I love ya ‘Cuz I’ll always be thinking of ya

While I can’t always be here with ya

Take this in, Em If there’s one thing I wanna give ya It’s a smile
