As the song lingers, the tune plays on, eliciting different emotions
One watches an old movie and the mind soars at its familiarity
Laughter of loved ones echo throughout ones heart and house,
Making the pink full moon happy…
One has to work at being calm and observing,
Eliciting various feelings from us
Yet the rush of happiness that flows through
Connects every dot and dash, making us one.
The gratefulness that befalls when one is truly aware
And sees the world in full display
Of its sadness and its joy
And gratefulness at our partner, Nature, at its best
The song and refrain repeat hypnotically
Many times and over in one's mind
One sees truth and hopes we learn from trial and error
Finally seeing acceptance and peace in the writing before us.
One plus one is two but one and one is also eleven
It’s just about which point of view you use and
Which side of the fence you are standing on…
Happiness is a two sided coin, head or tails?
Choice is a gift to be opened carefully
As it comes in Pandora’s box
Choose wisely and the World is yours,
Choose not so well and the struggle begins…
We are all blessed and yet we yearn,
Truly God’s world is ours
Beauty and serenity, wisdom and awareness
Are in all our choices, and that is how we learn.
