A water bead on lotus leaf -
Shimmering with a glow
But up to that time only
As long is on the leaf.
With a little jerk or a shake
It rolls down and ends.
This life is like that only
As a drop on a lotus leaf
Priceless is our human life
But very mortal and short lived.
With a little quiver or a tweak
It shatters and then breaks.
Very short lived and uncertain
Like the dew on the grass tips.
To extract the beauty of life
So long you are alive -
Love all with love and peace -
Love flower bird and child.
Spread out the treasure of love
To the saints, demons and the beasts.
Enjoy the life without harming others
Live and let live with peace,
Who knows when the heart will stop
Even when you're at your height of success!
