Melodies from moonlit nights

melodies from moonlit nights

Never try a futile thing
something like a childish yearning
trying to hold water in fist
thinking it will stop it.

Water that’s running
will slip through fingers
nothing will stop it
as long as its water.

Don’t try to stop a happy soul
by using childish tactics
thinking that will stop him
from being happy always.

Happy souls are just like it
you may make them sad
for just a little while
then they will overcome it.
