The mystery of life



One day I met a wise old man 
Who was sitting in the park 
And there upon the bench with him 
We talked ‘till early dark 

He told me of his travels 
To a far off distant land 
Where the secret meaning of our lives 
Was taught to him first hand 

I listened to his story 
Amazed by what he said 
The simple truth of which he spoke 
Was knowledge not widespread 

In great detail he did explain 
What life was all about 
And how the answer we do seek 
We don’t have to be without 

There was something in his message 
That I could not reject 
A wisdom that I understood 
So simple and direct 

My life forever has been changed 
By the words I heard that day 
A concept old as life itself 
And by far the one true way 

An answer to the question why 
And the reason we exist 
Solutions I would not now know 
If my walk that day was missed
