I'LL WALK JUST BEYOND THE MOON THEN I'LL STOP AND WAIT FOR YOU

(RECITATION)
MY MOTHER AND MY FATHER WERE IN LOVE FOR 50 YEARS 
SO WHEN DAD DIED WE WONDERED WHY MY MOTHER SHED NO TEARS 
WE ASKED HER ONCE ABOUT IT BUT SHE WOULDN'T TELL US WHY 
INSTEAD SHE'D WALK OUTSIDE EACH NIGHT AND SMILE UP AT THE SKY 
THEN JUST BEFORE SHE LEFT US SHE CALLED US TO HER SIDE…
SHE TOLD US WHAT MY FATHER SAID TO HER JUST BEFORE HE DIED

I REMEMBER WHEN YOU SAID YOU'D NEVER LEAVE ME 
THROUGH THESE GOLDEN YEARS I'VE KEPT THE SAME VOW TOO
BUT NOW THAT I AM GOING PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME 
I'LL WALK JUST BEYOND THE MOON THEN I'LL STOP AND WAIT FOR YOU

(Chorus 1)
YOU CAN LOOK UP EVERY NIGHT AND YOU'LL SEE ME LIGHT THE LIGHT 
WHERE I'LL WATCH FOR YOU TO JOIN ME SOMEDAY SOON
WE'LL GO LOOKIN THROUGH THE STARS FOR THE HEAVEN THAT IS OURS
AND I KNOW WE'LL FIND IT SOON SOMEWHERE JUST BEYOND THE MOON

I'LL WALK JUST BEYOND THE MOON THEN I'LL STOP AND WAIT FOR YOU

(Chorus 2)
I'LL JUST SIT THERE BY A STAR AND I'LL WATCH YOU FROM AFAR 
TIL I SEE YOU WALKING TOWARD ME SOMEDAY SOON 
THEN TOGETHER HAND IN HAND WE'LL FIND OUR PROMISED LAND 
AND WE'LL SETTLE DOWN FOREVER DARLIN' JUST BEYOND THE MOON
