Sleeping Beauty was a joyful child,
Who skipped and danced, laughed and sang.
Free-spirited as anyone was she,
Her voice throughout the castle rang!
Then a potion deadened her soul;
Anesthesia stopped her play.
Her laughter faded, her feet became still;
Sleeping Beauty just slipped away.
After many years of deep repose,
She awoke to Love’s sweet kiss.
Amazement, relief and celebration
Broke out for a wonder like this!
Nobody knew or even thought
The princess could become whole.
They had given up and left her alone,
But now there’s such life in her soul.
Some people couldn’t believe it;
Others thought it might be true.
To awaken after many years’ sleep,
Was a mystery so rare and new.
As Sleeping Beauty found herself,
Her brightness returned once more.
The song in her heart is of gratitude
For Love’s mighty power to restore.
