Mine eyes see the beauty of the earth.
My heart radiates love and warmth
to fellow human beings!
I smell the aroma of honeysuckle,
lavender, growing wild in hedgerows.
I feel harsh winds blow upon my face,
burning sun on my body,
granules of sand between my toes...
cooled by waves lapping the seashore!
I breathe deeply, sucking in the atmosphere.
Draining away tension and fear!
The greatest gift of life,
is giving unconditional love.
Friendship means everything to me,
I aim to give angelic purity...
Faith and hope join together,
helping to face stormy weather,
blinding as in a rainbow!
God gave us speech...
...to spread the written word.
