I Listen

The flow of the water from the mountain,
Brings comfort to your heart.
As the water flows we encounter new endeavors.
This is the way of life

Smile at the clouds for they tell a story
Give yourself time, feel the flow 
of the water in your heart
It is comforting and brings the joy of love.

The peace you seek is to be shared 
For those who are willing to share peace find peace
Those who do not understand nor comprehend
Are left with nothing but emptiness

Left with your thoughts
You are delighted and
Return to mountain and the
Flow of the water and peace

    This is a very essential piece. It's one thing to hear, it's another to understand the ebb & flow of life and its heart. Nicely done!
