a duet

a duet
by scott and the mascot

a brief history-   scott requested to compose a thank you sort of post to/for his mascot.  the mascot who hates to dwell  on her good qualities, squirmed and became very uncomfortable. but with the hightest respect towards scott's passion to express what he wanted her to know, she pursued his request.

round one would be to have his mother work with him on a primary draft, key thoughts important to him.  the mascot then would go through them one by one allowing him to follow his thoughts and to express them to his satisfaction on contentment.   this took many sessions and painfully long lengths of time between them.

the mascot being allowed to see scott, knew much of what he probably wanted to say, as they talk with their eyes deeply.  fewer words, much weight in them.  she knew she knew, but not as he wanted her to know.  they turned the composition into this duet.   

scott is refered to as the mascot's shadetree, a long established term of endearment.  the mascot is, well the mascot.  the treasures of the heart are the most valuable of all. 

for many reasons, may others see...  may others know....  may we all grow...

my favorite mascot
SCOTT REQUESTS THIS BE READ  SLOW

my favorite mascot you do not know
all you mean to me
nor do you the countless times
you've set my worries free

you can not know the gratitude
that burns everyday
for i'm so thankful to the stars
you happened cross my way

oh shadetree fair how can you know
the comfort in your shade
sitting next to you my friend
all the worries quickly fade

i know you see it in my face
tho i wish it were not so
you smile at me, and its all gone
now is left a soothing glow

mascot, friend, then you too know
the joy that floods my soul
knowing you come here to rest
and feel a bit more whole

just rest a spell and share a smile
i give them all for you
drink them in and sit awhile
take a break from all you do.

fact as you rest let me talk
and say a few things true
about what i appreciate
when i think of you

thank you for asking me
and making me feel a part
for showing me worlds i never knew
for talking with my heart

you listen when all are gone
you know when i've something to say
you do not stop till i am done
you touch me every day

you know i'm bigger, you see within
what others do not see
you notice all those little things
that makeup the me of me

it matters much to me- so know
regardless what others may say
you make my world a better place
every single day

i know you look
i know you see
i know you hear my voice

i know you care
i know you dare
i know you have a choice

my favorite mascot you can not know
all that you mean to me
nor do you the countless times
you've set my being free

you can not know the gratitude
that burns stronger everyday
nor all the joy i have inside
you happened cross my way

oh shadetree dear how can you know
the warmth within your shade
sitting next to you so safe
all the worries all do fade

i know you see it in my face
tho i wish it were not so
then you smile at me, and its all gone
now is left the warmest glow
