Lyrics:

Picture Yourself
Words and Music by Cassandra White

Met a child the other day,
I'll call him Johnny just to keep him safe.
The cutest smile you've ever seen
and big bright eyes starring back at me.
As he fell I knelt to pick him up,
but the nurses quickly said, "DON'T TOUCH!"

Picture yourself
only 5 and it's a fight to stay alive.
A day filled with pills to masquerade the pain.
Maybe there's a place somewhere,
where no more pain exist.
Now Johnny knows,
because he passed away today.

Can we forget to love;
forget to share our blessings from above?
Johnny's not the only one
there's many more names unsung.
When we think of how they make it thru,
what if it was me or you.

Picture yourself
only 5 and it's a fight to stay alive.
A day filled with pills to masquerade the pain.
Maybe there's a place somewhere,
where no more pain exist.
Now Johnny knows,
because he passed away today.
