Precious intangible feelings,
these are the reasons for living,
a little love and a taste of joy,
these are our. Are life's toys,
not material wealth, gold nor diamonds,
just the warmth in our heart,
the brightest of suns,
with the tiniest spark it has begun,
that's how it began, that's how it starts,
the greatest of fires from the smallest of sparks,
a tree can be a million matches,
one match can burn a million trees,
you have the spark? 'tis your duty!
as the bearer of the torch,
to spread the light to all who can see,
to spread that thing that's deep inside,
to reach out with an open heart, into the dark,
to those souls who know not peace and joy,
leading those who live in fear,
into the warmth of the open heart.
