The Best is Yet to Be

Wind rustling the summer leaves,

The best is yet to be,

Now is the crucial moment for you.

Birds twittering and chirping here and there,

The best is yet to be,

Now is the crucial moment for you.

The tide rising and flowing in,

The best is yet to be,

Now is the crucial moment for you.

Reeds putting forth shoots,

The best is yet to be,

Now is the crucial moment for you.

The rest of my life,

The best is yet to be and be seen.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
