Symphony (Life)

Post by soular » Fri Aug 14, 2015 9:22 pm

Now
set the gear in neutral

Let go
along with nature

As one
breath, heartbeat, every cell in harmony

Without you
with the whole universe

Thank you

Believe it or not, there's always love
Nothing's here without

And everyone wants to love
and be loved

Struggle - lyrics

Life is a struggle for love to stay
Till it stays eternally

To know is to feel
And to feel, to know

Life is a struggle for love to stay
Till it stays eternally

Born to live, learn to love
And to love is to be

Life is a struggle for love to stay
Till it stays eternally

Love provides.

Free from all,
I'm free.

Even from a wonder
if I can ever be.

Even from a thought
what I will be then.

Free from all,
love provides.

Be-all

Whatever you notice exists
Whatever noticed by you exists
Visible or invisible, they all outshine

You sure know by experience
Judgement is collateral
Plain and simple

Prayer

I don't know why I love you but I do
I could find countless reasons but I won't
I don't know why I love you but it just feels right
Thanking you for the bliss, I pray for you day and night

---

Let me stay
For everything is here

Let me go
For everything is there

What I am and I am not
In the lost and found

In the heart
I hide and seek

Let me stay
For everything is here

Let me go
For everything is there

When in sync
Voice is heard

When in unison
Song is sung

Let me stay
For everything is here

Let me go
For everything is there

Reads like a song, heartfelt lyrics. I enjoyed these lines best : "Judgement is collateral, Plain and simple". Thanks for sharing - :hello:

Arigato Seiichi! :cool: I am as well as I can be.

it's quiet,

Thanks much, Heinz :thumbsup:
Thinking a while about a version from Japanese, I found there was no need at all.
But I was inspired, so forgetting the greatness of Basho, I had a try.

in situ

Alright at this very moment,
will ever be,
and has always been.
