The miracle of life

Reprise

Don’t ask me the impossible
And I’ll always surprise you
Don’t be hard on yourself
You have the right to fail
Don’t judge others
Beacause you ignore what they went through
Don’t forget the child in you
Accept yourself as a whole
Don’t be wise all the time
And be ready for the unpredictable
Don’t hide your feelings
They make you unique and special
Don’t take life too seriously
And embrace the unexpected
Don’t let go of your dreams
They keep you alive
Expect nothing
Just enjoy every moment.

Love today!

Reprise

Purple, orange, green and blue
I am all the colours whenever with you
A wide field of beautiful daisies
Our days are overwhelming and crazy
A stunning poppy covered in red velvet
The landcsape is almost psychedelic
Forget yesterday and don’t worry about tomorrow
Life is more than pain and sorrow
Follow your dreams, they know the way
You may only be sure of today.

Oh happy days!

Reprise

A walk through the clouds
Flying high like a bee
A stroll in the forest
Having fun like a fox
A bath under the sun
Like a happy lizard
A picnic with the family
Like we used to do
Fresh grass under my feet
Fragrant flowers on my hair
And a smile on my face
Oh happy days!

Fun fair

We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

George Bernard Shaw

Even though you’re growing up, you should never stop having fun.

Nina Dobrev

Have fun, even if it’s not the same kind of fun everyone else is having.

Strawberries field

We cry in silence
We lost our guidance
We need sweetness
And a hint of happiness
The world has gone crazy
And human beings are too lazy
To keep fighting for their rights
Violence exploses like dynamite
We should pray instead
For those who are already dead
We need to have faith and hope
And trust the Almighty above
Everything happens for a reason
And bad things won’t last the whole season
So, let’s stay together
Today, tomorrow, forever!

Look closer!

Sometimes we are too occupied
To pay attention to details
Or maybe we are just distracted
Who knows?
The beach is empty
The sea is calm
Peaceful moment
The pool is overflowing
Where? I don’t see it.
Look closer!
