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.

Reprise

I’m always thinking of new things
My head is full of dreams
Sometimes I don’t feel my body at all
But I rescue myself wherewithal
I need no wings to fly
Or sad feelings to cry
My soul is alone
But it knows the way back home
My feet are strong
But they are allowed to be wrong
Life is more than black or white
Humans are not always right
And that’s the whole miracle
Of this invisible struggle.

Spring…at last!

The birds are whistling up on the hill
The trees are quiet and still
The sun is shining in the sky
The temperature is high
Butterflies are singing in my head
Flowers are blooming everywhere
I count from one to ten
The Earth was born…again!

Fairy tale

Reprise

Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.

C. S. Lewis

I believe in fairies and elves
In giants and dragons
I believe in magic potions
That make us invincible
I believe in miracles
I’ve seen them with my own eyes
I believe life is a fairy tale
Full of surprises
You’d better start living now
Otherwise, you will be caught up by time
One day, you will be old
And you realise what you’ve missed
Guess what?
It will be too late!
