To Be Human
Philip Claude Andermann
Two people are never worlds apart
if only one stays able to dance bathed in joy
beneath the rays of the sun of deep happiness
should it rise in the other's life.
If there is someone
whose smile of happiness we value so much, that if we only
knew how, we would do anything,
perhaps even give our life, to make that smile real:
then, if we are to inspire that person to polish his or her
affecting everything in that waiting life,
let's change ourselves first,
so we can see a glowing treasure
of pure happiness reflected
in the other's shining eyes.
For what we find at the bottom of our hearts to give
is the only treasure we can keep forever,
and - much more - keep giving.
