[Empathy
The ability to understand and share the feelings of another fellow human being

Early morning sunbeams
That whisper
Through the skies
The sound of birds, of silent breeze
The sound of colours when they emerge

But I stay right here with you
 
You cannot run away
It’s stressful I will say
But we will rule the world someday
And then you’ll gladly stay
To open up a distant mind
You show me love and show me kind
So we can fly away as we will fly away
 
The dawn of day is rising, the new life has begun
Someone should be smiling

and I wanted to share everything together
and I thought we were a very good team…]
