Enjoy them now – Enjoy them now,
For they”ll be gone, all too soon;
It doesn’t last, this special time,
When they’re always needing you:
Enjoy them now.
The composer wrote this song shortly after the birth of her 5th child, With five kids age eight and under, the house was full, her hands were full, and she was constantly tired.
This song is based on advice given to her then, to help her through that demanding time. Beyond that – it’s an anthem to the importance of all our relationships. None of know how long our loved ones will be with us. “Enjoy them now.”
