Never lose the wonder
Life may not seem to sparkle, nor the path before you clear
The view may seem quite distant of things that should be near
Within you is an emptiness, confusion caught within this day
So look beyond that void, and let nature show you the way
Never lose the wonder seen in a moon-lit starry night
Or of the redness in the sky, seen in dawns early light
Cherish those precious moments, for there is beauty everywhere
From the butterfly upon a leaf, to the wind blowing in your hair
Life may seem a struggle and the days seem very slow
The past seems forgotten and of the future you do not know
But this moment is a gift that you now hold within you hand
From the sky high above you to the sea crashing upon its sand
Never lose the wonder of when the Robin begins to sing
Or of the bluebells and daffodils that bloom again each spring
Recognise those gifts around you that are found within your life
So relax a while with nature and ease the tension from your strife
