Such Is Life


I guess in the end everything seems to follow
the same pattern as mother nature.
As young kids, like the grass of the forest,
We played together,
Peace, love and harmony ever abundant in our hearts.

As the years went by,
And love,
Once a stranger..
Became a surprise captain controlling the ship.
Then the battles began,
Many bonds were untied,
Survival of the fittest was the law,
Just like in a savanna jungle..

After some time,
Like after every storm or war,
Calmness prevailed,
And our hearts were filled with love...
Then we tried to make up for lost time...

But like the birds in a nest,
All had departed,
Riding on the fast lane of life..
Somewhat driving us further apart..
Permanently, ......
Just like the stars in the sky.

Dreams running different directions,
We started to paint ourselves,
With different thoughts,
Different colors....
And whenever we came together..
We seemed to be forming a rainbow...

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
