Let there be light
and there was light,
A thousand lights for the night
and the day but one,
A thousand stars in the sky
and the sun but one.
The mind has a thousand eyes
and the heart but one.
A thousand friends that stick like glue,
Solely on you I’m stuck.
Loose sands on the sea, Water over lands
So spreads kin, so spreads kith
Solely you hold my heart
You are my sun, my song, my star
First before me, the holder of my smiles
My number one: best of them all.
