This gentle light, won’t do me harm
It’s nice, caressing, keeps me warm.
The sun, what does it stand for?
It’s our universe’s heart
In life, it plays the biggest part
Do I have to tell you more?
The wind, the moon, they all depend
On our light, with no start, or end.
Nature is the biggest power
It influences all around
Sometimes quiet, sometimes with sound
The human, animal, and the flower.
The smallest things, that’s what I learned
Are worth so much more than what we earned.
Beauty is not in a model’s face
It’s not in artificial things
It’s not in princes, queens, or kings
It’s in an angel’s loving grace.
These few words, how can it be
That they mean so much to me?
They touch my heart, they calm my fears
They hold the love that’s in my heart
In my soul they play their part.
But most they comfort me and dry my tears.
