You Light Up My Life

It's Monday morn, the week is before me
Waiting for something to fill up my day,
I'm tired of TV, don't want to nap now
Alone with my thoughts, but then you come along.
And you light up my life,
You take me out to celebrate,
You light up my day
With friends and fun and games.
Red hats and tea, Bingo and music,
Art, crafts and socials; no time to be bored
Laughing and singing, friends all here with me
Your gentle grace, and your smiling face.
And you light up my life,
You give me hope to carry on
You light up my days
And help me feel at home
I'm not alone
With you at my side
Cause you--you light up my life.
