Our Beauties

1999




We gather our beauties
One by one...
Our lives are a string of beauties...
We take them to ourselves
And make them ours.

For some...
Our beauties are simple...
Common to all
Or of no note...
But to us...
A simple glory
And full of music.

For some...
Our beauties may not be understood...
But to us...
They are the very meaning of our lives.

To some...
Life is mere work and hardship...
But to us...
When we find our beauties...
It is the joy of our hearts.

We keep our beauties in a treasure chest
And when life has lost its glow
We open it again
And see them anew
And smile now...
At the gifts that are our lives.
