A way of living

Everything echoes and fades away hastily,
Even the passage of the sunlight misses out-
You have to remain without a solution.

Cold winds come across from the distant sea,
If you have love, do always carry within you-
Hardly anyone will notice a way of living there.

In the great silence of the surrounds,
Someone may come with great trust-
So very delicate words you listen.

Live everything from loneliness to the chaos,
Capture every shade of pain in your thoughts-
Take it upon yourself and peel the inner layers.

Your dreams have a life of their own,
You seek in every moment, every interval-
The innermost soul leads you way to the answer.
