Know the rain coming down, ravens, Have the heart to mend the brokenness, Sing the songs whispering within, Hear what is never spoken again, Fear the shadows between letters, Doubt whatever meant to be, Believe sharing love best when tested.
Know the child hidden inside, Have enough to give without blinking, Sing loud and not falter when heard, Hear and speak the silence of trees, Fear worth is too little to measure, Doubt the well will produce pleasure, Believe all is precious, priceless treasure.

Fingers wanting to hold Tight to things material But time gives lessons On how better to allow What is precious to pass.

Only to be today Worry along nary other way Find the smiles, laughter, Learn and again, for knowledge May keep company after. Love, it is living The spirit, soul, heart Of every human being, Mutual, a blessed treasure Often sought, seldom caught. The pain of years Memories of beauty, love, joy Restrain a flood of tears For sadness brings reminding Life is worth all given. So sing loud, pray often, Hug the beloved Swim with the dolphin Share and be grateful Existing is delightful.
