The years pass by
Become less long
A presence’s gone
Which was once strong

Is this the moment
When things begin
To know existence
By leaving it
To grow up, not old

To know the whole
Not just the parts
To surrender
Fall apart

To be still
While the wheel spins
To see everything
For what it is
To grow up, not old

To unravel
To unfold
To let go
Of these clothes
To undo
All you’ve done
To be a void
And let it come

To be aware
And detached
From the future
And the past
To find the essence
To find the soul
To grow up
Not old
