What is the Soul, have you ever thought?  Or is it a mystery in which you are caught?  We all have a Soul, we seem to know  Let's realize the truth before it is time to go  It is the Soul that makes me live  But, is it the one that makes me forgive?  What is the function of the Soul?  What does it do to make me whole?   Body, mind, heart and Soul Each has a specific role The body moves and the mind does think  The heart beats, and the Soul? I blink  I have been taught that the Soul's in me  It makes me who I am meant to be It is with me when I live, till I die  And then, I am told, it flies in the sky Where does the Soul go and how? I wonder  It goes to heaven, how? I ponder  Everybody says, “We have a Soul”  To search for it is now my goal My eyes and nose I can touch and feel  My mind, it wanders, my peace it does steal  Aha! Now I know what my Soul does do  It gives me life, I have got the clue  The Soul is a power that gives me breath  Without the Soul, there would be death  It comes to me just as I am born And it leaves me when life is gone  Without the Soul, I would be dead  I wouldn't talk, wouldn't eat bread  My Soul is alive in every cell  It makes me pray and ring the bell  The Soul is energy, it gives me power  It makes me grow tall like a tower  But once it leaves, I can't even bend  And my life story comes to an end  What is the Soul? I stopped to think  So many tales that make me blink The truth by now I am sure I know  It is Divine Life that makes me glow What is our life's ultimate goal?  To find the truth about the Soul Before life is over, and it is time to die  We must find the truth, not in ignorance lie  Is my Soul different from yours? I think  I question and try to find the link Just like there is one power source in my house, I know  That makes both gadgets work and the lights glow  And so, there is just one life source  It appears different, but it is one, of course!  It is energy that creates all life  In me, my parents, my kids, my wife  Not just in human beings it is In animals and plants, it's also this  It is this Power that makes birds fly  And everything alive on earth and sky  What is this Power, the Soul that we call?  What is this Power that is alive in us all?  To discover the truth about the Soul  Is our life's Ultimate Goal   The Soul is not mortal, it is Divine  It is not yours, it is not mine It is the Lord that lives in us To realize this truth, we have missed the bus
