O, Grieve not, Lil One,
for life down here,
is merely temporary, my dear.
So, listen to the river flow,
and watch the many flowers grow,
see the sunrise: watch it set,
while hearing the birds chirp,
along with the childrens mirth;
Why not dance 'round in the yard;
so that life will not seem as hard?
Give thanks and hum a few prayers.
Now, just use these items through the years,
to lighten-up your burdens, crosses, and cares .
