L'essentiel Est Invisible

Listen to the sound of the stars
'Tis laughter, ringing like a hundred little bells
Except for you, no one hears the music
Stars are silent to untrained ears
Sunsets do not sing
Everything is reduced to numbers
Nothing, though, could be more wrong!
There is so much to hear
If you only listen
Except for you, the Earth is deaf
Lost without a well

Even the little things have their beauty
So I learned in my time with you
The eyes are not what see the truth

It's only with the heart that one can see rightly
No one but you could understand
Very simple things are beautiful, too
I will not leave you, little one
Stay with me – do not depart!
Because of you,
Little one,
Everything is new
