The entire world is so beautiful in my eyes, so young and so smiling.
Green and fresh.. fresh blue is my sky, green is the garden’s dress.
The fading moonlight, the tender bud, all are like my existence.
They know no regret, no grief of life are met.
They hum their songs of happiness, they laugh all day.. they wish to live and greet their death this way.
The flowers fall while it is bright, the moonlight fades smiling its way..
Smiling all the way, the stars hide themselves behind the sharp light rays.
Who is as happy as the way I stay in my life?
Come, O friend come to me. Let us clear all strife.
Let me tell you the story of my happy heart, lest you forget your grief.
You cry all day, lets have a moment of an eternal smile, which might just be as brief.
for one moment, let us sing together forgetting all grief.
The day is now, the moment is here.. strong is my belief.
