Emerging from the shadow, I was welcomed into this Beautiful and colorful world Filled with sounds and words!
Surrounded by smiling faces, The light stroke my tender eyes And most likely everyone around For the first time heard me As an innocent baby crying!
I can just imagine the first time When I saw the rainbow, The clear sky blue reflected In the river, lake or immense sea!
I can’t recall the first time When I also saw the pure green From the dense forest and The red, brown and yellow leaves Of the beautiful autumn and When I noticed the different Skin colors of the human race!
What a surprise was for me When I saw the first butterfly In the colorful garden nearby Or taking off to the high sky, I can just imagine!
When I saw and touched The whiteness of the falling snow In the middle of a cold winter! Oh, how beautiful is the world!
