You may be alone, never feel lonely, I am with you;
The sun and the moon and stars too are all with you.
Sun gives you light, air, food, warmth and all you need to thrive;
Moon soothes many a tormented soul, keeps many a dream alive.
Stars twinkle, make one wonder, charm many a young and old;
I am with you, as are the sun and the moon and stars manifold.
Alone are churches, temples, mosques and the pyramids;
Alone are towers, the Burj, the Eiffel, the Qutb and the Willis.
Alone are rivers, the Amazon, the Mississippi, the Nile and the Ganges;
Alone are mountains, the Alps, the Himalayas, the Pamir and the Andes.
Alone are planets, Jupiter, Venus, Mars and Saturn;
Alone are oceans, the Atlantic, the Indian, the Pacific and the Southern.
The world travels with you wherever you go, you are never alone;
Why feel lonely, I am with you, as are stars and the sun and the moon.
You are never alone, nor are stars or the moon or the sun;
I am with you, now and forever, close your eyes and look within.
In this noise, we are all together, from one silence to another one;
You are with me, I am not alone, nor are stars or the moon or the sun.
From nothing it all started, back to nothing it will all return;
The sun, the moon and stars, and all things you see here shall return.
Till the sun shines, be a sun or a moon or a star wherever you go;
Till the earth moves, be a tree or run like a river in any way you can do.
