In the heart of nature , he lives within
He's leaving the Earth
All the pain , All the mirth
Someday he may not recall
Of the days he felt ecstasy with all
The days that made him cry and fret
Times when he was content with life
Times when each moment was a painful strife
He may no longer remember
Nights blessed with peaceful slumber
Or the nights spent in endless tears
Times when he enjoyed like a free child
Times when no reasons of bliss he could find
Days he lend a hand for the ones who sail
Or the days when others helped him sail
Across the ocean of life !
He may no longer remember a thing...
O nature ! Wilst thou also forget his being?
' The Sun shall continue to smile...
The Moon will go on in her journey of miles
The stars shall continue to glisten
Birds shall sing and men shall listen
Flowers shall bloom and leaves shall rustle
Men will live in their hustle and bustle
My son , I shall never forget his being
He'll stay alive in forms
Unheard and unseen
Lulled by the breeze
Kissed by the rain...
...For his body of dust will go back therein
An element of nature in nature shall remain
Always caressed , Always within !'
