Music Of The Unfolding


Refresh your perspective of life
By changing to new rules that survive

And soak in the light of sunshine
By learning to drink joy's wine

For life is decorated with the lace
Of happiness with intervals of trial's face

Where headache, frustration and despair
All come in to stay for a while dear

So listen carefully for the music of life
When it unfolds in fain's drive

And preserve large doses of encouragement dear
For its the fuel of love and cheer

That can lead you to the door of mode
Where you can throw trouble's load

And all your anxious thoughts of life
That do here are born and survive

And save yourself and your soul
From drowning in emotion and dole

And once again refresh your perspective of life
By changing to new rules that survive.

    are there any new rules out there, Seema. Well, if they survive they become like old rules and we can still discover them - they are always there, renewed in our lives if we would only be recollective and discover them, anew. This is beautiful, Seema, lifts the soul. (Report) Reply
