Life

Life...
Is my meaning.
And life...
Is the nectar sweet.
Life...
Is what's inside of me.

To live as given.

Life...
Is no mocking bird.
And life...
Can be just a word.
But life...
Is what's inside of me!

Not here to prophecize it.
Or criticize or try.
Nor do I push aside...
The reason why,
Some live denying.

Life...
Is my meaning.
And life...
Is the nectar sweet.
Life...
Is what's inside of me.

And I'm gonna live my life...
As no mocking bird.
And life...
Can be just a word.
But life...
Is what's inside of me!

And I believe my life...
Is my precious gem.
Life...
Is what's inside of me,
Within every minute.
And life...
Is what it's gonna be.
To live as it's given!
And life...
Is what it's gonna be.
To live as it's given!
And my life...
Is what God gave to me!

Not here to prophecize it.
Or criticize or try.
Nor do I push aside...
The reason why,
Some live denying.

My life...
Is what it means to me!
