This song is pretty straight-forward. Much like me! No decoding necessary. I wrote it as a reminder for you; a reminder for my daughter, and son as they voyage through school and life; a reminder to the person that sits and doubts and doubts and doesn’t quite seem to have that solid confidence of just knowing deep down that they ARE great. This song is something you take with you. You commit it to your heart. Somebody out there loves you. You ARE something special. OWN IT! Shine your light. We need it.

Life won’t always be filled with roses and pats on the back, so when things aren’t going your way, don’t let it get you down. Just keep your feet planted on a firm foundation to help you persevere and stay focused on your goals. No matter how tough things get, and no matter how dark this world seems, hold your head high and know that YOU are LOVED. Seriously! I’m talkin to YOU…

~Maygen! ;)


May the road rise to meet you, and the sun kiss your face
May there always be a miracle waitin just to bless your day
Life won't always hand you roses, don’t let it get ya down
Keep your eyes on what your goal is, and your feet on solid ground
Take this with you...where you go

You are loved, loved, loved, loved, loved, loved
You are loved, yeah you are

Might you walk courageously, through the valley of your doubt
Might you always strive to just keep, believing in yourself
When the trouble comes and it will, hold your head up high
Shine your light as bright as you can, til your trouble passes by
And always know


Life won’t always be hard
But when it is, don’t forget who you are
And the fact that you are
Looooooved, loooooved

...You’re great, don't ever lose sight of that
