Youth, holiest fairy of all
You embrace my body and dwell inside my soul
You give me wings to fly beyond what my sight reveals
You feed me hope, light and relief.
I am young – my age pours out of every breath I take
I live each day without a care for snow or rain
The sand goes through the hour-glass so slowly
That’s why I don’t mind if in my travel I’m accompanied or lonely.
Life is just opening its doors for me
It’s like I’d have an eternity on this Earth myself to be
I am snail walking through life – I have the time to do so.
To stroll forgotten alleys and listen to the whispers,
To watch the insects and their flight,
To ponder over nothingness.
This is the time when life looks pink
When dreams and hopes can raise and die in a wink
But there is always something new to catch my eye
That’s why I don’t mind if a dream might die.
This Earth is rich and blessed with much abundance
There are so many beauties to be seen, so many wonders!!
Too bad that we forget to watch them with an open heart
And let them bring us peace and bless us with their art!
Somehow I know my eyes give sense to the existence
Of stars and grass and little creature
Because, being a child, I am convinced they matter
I find my place among them – nature’s my alma mater.
I am snail walking through this life – and keep my eyes wide open
I pity those who rush their time and live with hearts so broken.
I praise the art of staying young by keeping alive the secret
Dropping all arms and giving in – remember – it’s not cricket.
Believe in life and keep your faith, don’t let yourselves forgotten
Dance in the grass and smile with the beauty this Earth’s begotten
Sing with the birds and like the Sun don’t lose the hope of raising
And when the time for setting comes accept it stately, without fighting.
But make sure you have spent your time slowly and witty
That you’ve enjoyed the little wonders that are seemingly petty
And if you honestly desire in this life to be happy
Just please remember – happiness is never brought by things that are material or bulky.
Snail-walk with me and keep inside a soul most pure
Snail-walk with me and learn to act at once childish and mature
You see – this is my secret and my truth
Happiness and peace are brought to me by this fairy called so beautifully Youth.
