It is great to be alive!
I am so happy to see the blueness of the sky,
To contribute to a charitable bottle drive,
And to hear birds singing and to watch them fly.
I have hardships, true,
But as long as I keep on going,
Those can be worked through.
The advice is: keep on glowing.

Do I still have the wisdom
To be happy about little things?
Can I still spread my little wings;
Listen to a running stream without boredom;
Smell fresh air, flowers;
See the blueness of the sky,
The greenness of the grass growing by;
Marvel at ancient towers?
Oh, I think I do.
I just forget sometimes.
Thank Thee, Father, for these rhymes.
Thank Thee for taking me through!
What you have, hold.
You are so rich indeed!
You are smart, you are bold,
Your health is more precious than gold.
So, be wise to save it and maintain.
No one knows what will happen then.
Under the sun or pouring rain,
Be sage to keep what is main.
Believe, these words are true.
You will need much strength –
Till the sky above is blue –
To do kind things, to break through!

When we speak about love which is true,
We should also mention respect all the way through.
Suffering and sacrifice can mingle too,
But also a lot of happiness and – in terms of mood – more pink than blue.
