The silence of life

The silence of life makes a sound in mind,
Its peace makes life worth living:
Peace is found in love without fear,
Love without fear is life.
The silence of life speaks of love,
And the touch of nature speaks of love;
Life speaks so silently and softly
from the depths of one's nature.
The silence of life brings the security of heart,
The mind makes for great strength
to combat fear, distracting thoughts and feelings;
In silent hearts, human souls find rest in God.
The silence of life is pure as crystal,
It allows its light shine upon others,
It penetrates in the depths of one's life
so that the light of kindness in us may shine to all.
As we move through life, we gather adventure,
Amazing happenings that strike thrills in all;
The silence of life is ours, to prepare us for heaven,
Eternal life will be our reward in the end.
