Centuries gone, sun never shone
Flowers died as did hope
No warmth to feel and love to show
All was quiet and covered in snow
One couldn’t hear the humming bees
Nor the rustling of the fallen leaves
No butterflies to seek the flowers
Nor the clouds to bring showers
Drip, Drip,Drip! Water drops are dripping
The Sun is comming out
Or is it just an illusion?
Who will uncover this mystery and confusion?
“I” Said the Faith from the abyss so dark!
“Hold me fast and listen to the chirping lark”
La Behold! After centuries the first sunshine falls
And brings the showers, bees, flowers and all
Sway O gloomy Soul! Sway in joy
The Faith will melt the ice and make you fly
You are destined to get the Honey and Hope
Let the ice melt, flowers to bloom and bees to approach!
