I woke up to one of the greatest surprises of my life,
It wasn’t the death of a loved one or the rebirth of a dead one,
It wasn’t the happenings of a bad day or the anxiety of a good day,
It was simply the surprise of life in a form I never imagined

It eats out my heart
to see you lost in the world of your thoughts
not because it hurts
but because it cost

Thoughts aren’t just what you think, they are your living companions
They breathe, they move and they grow
They dwell in our minds
And work in our hearts

They sing the melody of ‘words’
And play the instruments of speech
They get married to our being
And ‘action’ is the fruit of her womb

In the splendour of her home, she lives with pride
Radiant and welcoming, she incites your heart
In your reaction spurred by her ‘habits’
She forms your character

Your little admiration beyond first sight
has taught you lessons beyond books
here you are in destiny
Shaped by your thoughts
