Why can’t we live like Swans?


Swans grace the lake at Gouganbarra,
The courting couple they swim together.

They mirror each other in every way, this pair are together,

That’s forever, it would never occur to them, to stray!

Their love is special and will never wane.
So happy just to be together, so simple in its way,
They admire each other; in a very special swan like way.

They look in the water and what can they see?
Why each other of course, for their reflections are the very same.

They preen each other in a very swan like way.
Their love is so strong; you know,

In an unconditional  swan like way.

They both tend their young when new life’s begun,
Working as one, each and every day,
In their own swan like way.

Sharing their thoughts, sharing their love,
devoted to all in their care…

Ever ready to share even the darker days and when one dies
they are not lost, cause memories last their whole life through…

The day will come and together they will be,
On a lake well above the world we know.

And once again the pair will be swimming together,
As graceful as ever and that will last forever….

O’ to be like swans?
