Quand la vie est un poème

Chaque jour est un vers

Quand la vie est un ver

Chaque jour est un brin d’herbe

Quand la vie est un champ d’herbe

Chaque jour est une voie ouverte

Quand la vie est une voix

Chaque jour est un chant

Quand chaque jour est un chanson

Chaque jour est une note

 

When life is a poem

Each day is a verse

When life is a worm

Each day is a blade of grass

When life is a field of grass

Each day is an open road

When life is a voice

Each day is a chant/song

When life is a song

Each day is a note
