353. LOVE


One day a child at school asked his teacher what love is.












Therefore, the teacher told her students to walk around the school yard and to bring her things which you could love……simply, things which provoke in you feelings of love.

Later, when all the students came back, they began to show the things they had found:
“I brought a rose….isn´t it beautiful?”, said a girl.

Another child said, “I found this little bird in a nest….isn´t it cute?”


A boy called Alvaro said, “I found some mistletoe in the garden.”

Everyone brought something that represented love for them.

But then, the teacher saw that one of the little girls had not brought anything.
“And you Clara,…. didn´t you find anything which you could love?”, the teacher asked her.
Clara, shyly responded:

“I saw the flower and I smelled its perfume. I thought of picking the flower, but then I left it so it could give off its aroma for a longer time.
I also saw  butterflies with beautiful colors, but they looked so happy that I didn´t dare catch one.

I saw the little bird, but when I went up the tree to see the nest, I saw the sad look of its mother and so I decided to leave it in the nest.
With me I only bring the perfume of the flower, the freedom of the butterflies and the gratitude in the eyes of the little bird´s mother.

“How can I show you what I brought….I didn´t bring anything?”, Clara said and greatly moving the teacher.
The teacher thanked Clara and told her that she was the only one to understand that love is not  a trophy.

Love is only found in one´s heart.

Lyrics
Who kicked a hole in the sky                             Quien hizo un agujero en el cielo
So the heavens would cry over me?                   para que el cielo llorara por mi?
Who stole the soul from the sun                         Quien robó el alma del sol
In a world come undone at the seams?               en un mundo roto?
Let there be love                                               Que haya amor
Let there be love
I hope the weather is calm                                 Espero que se calme el tiempo
As you sail up your heavenly stream                  Mientras navegas en tu arroyo celestial
Suspended clear in the sky                                Suspendido en el cielo
Are the words that we sing in our dreams            Son las palabras que cantamos en nuestros sueños 
Let there be love
Let there be love
Let there be love
Let there be love
Come on, baby blue                                          Vamos niña azul
Shake up your tired eyes                                   abre tus ojos cansado
The world is waiting for you                               El mundo te espera
May all your dreaming fill the empty sky             Que todos tus sueños llenen el cielo vacio
But if it makes you happy                                  pero si te hace feliz
Keep on clapping                                              sigue aplaudiendo
Just remember I'll be by your side                      solo recuerda que estaré a tu lado
And if you don't let go, it's gonna pass you by     y si no lo sueltas, lo perderás
Who kicked a hole in the sky                             Quien hizo un agujero en el cielo
So the heavens would cry over me?                   para que el cielo llorara por mi?
Who stole the soul from the sun                         Quien robó el alma del sol
In a world come undone at the seams?               en un mundo roto? 
Let there be love                                               Que haya amor
Let there be love
Let there be love
Let there be love
Let there be love
Let there be love
Let there be love
Let there be love
