Laurette van der Merwe
As I look I see the faces
of my family, friends and pets.
Like little flowers smiling
and filling my heart with joy.
I open my eyes and look in wonder,
at the beauty surrounding me,
making my life seem so worthwhile.
I feel free like the birds of the air,
and beautiful like the flowers,
that fill the day with fragrances,
because the one that I love, loves me.
My heart is full because I am able to
create the things that my heart desires,
and know that my life is full of
the songs of pure happiness.
