This sugary little word
What is it?
The soothing vibrations of trees
The relaxing sound of pebbles
In the river
The captivating rhythmic waves
At the beach
The whistling sound
Of a Choo Choo train
The people singing
In chorus at the Light House
The diversities of voices
And instruments

A language
That speaks in emotions
The birds’ charming melodies
The tempting garden
Where every one
Wants to wander around
And feel
Vibrant and alive
Bonds every one of us
With unconditional love
The sweetest source
Of purest pleasure
The most essential food
Of every soul
In this universe
Without it
We don’t exist
