Nature’s Gifts

And so the bird kept singing
The river kept flowing
The leaves kept fluttering gently in the breeze

None of them cared what I had won
None of them cared what I had lost
None of them cared about who I was

The bird sang another tune
The river swelled in the monsoon
The leaves turned golden and started to fall

None of them were looking at me
None of them were demanding of me
None of them were asking anything from me

I opened my ears to enjoy the music
I opened my heart to embrace life’s flow
I opened my mind to the beauty of change

And the bird sang yet some more
The river still kept flowing
As new buds of leaves began to grow
