Lyrics- This is the story of a boy named Arbor. He was strong just like a tree. His roots were planted in New York with his father. The summer fair was his first memory. Sun shining in his eyes. A picture of blue skies. Then his life changed when he got to the 4th grade. They said it's just flu season when he stopped eating. For a whole 8 months he fought Leukemia. Oh, oh, your leaves they may be gone but Oh, oh, your branches still are strong. Every season changes and with darkness comes the dawn. Oh life goes on. Robots and legos kept his mind occupied while the grown-ups tried and tried to treat his case. Doodles in his notebook took him to a different world. He escaped in a rocket ship and flew on out to space. He counted up the days till he could go and play. Arbor is 13 now with more rings around his trunk. His branches grew, his leaves turned new. Out came the summer sun. He tells the story how it's all behind him now.

Tim Adams Connecticut, USA

VERSE 1 I was once like any other kid Playin, laughin like they did Runnin up and down the street Healthy as a boy could be Little did I know it would change for me CHORUS Life Goes On Life Goes On Yes it’s true no matter what you do If things go right or things go wrong Life Goes On Life Goes On VERSE 2 The doctor said it’s just the flu The clinic said the same thing too On and on the weeks dragged by We finally let the experts try They said “Leukemia” and then mom cried CHORUS The treatments lasted eight long months Those dark and dreary days are done And now I’m back with all my friends This is how my story ends I’m happy to be me once again CHORUS Copyright 2015 TimKat Productions
