In silence,
Magic flows,
The way rivers flow into the ocean.

In silence,
Magic flows,
The way knowledge flows and becomes wisdom.

In silence,
Magic flows,
The way events flow and form history.

In silence,
Magic flows,
The way time flows and changes the world.

In silence,
Magic flows,
The way tears flow and regret things.

Magic flows in silence.
Time is not time without magic.
Words are not words without magic.
Saints are no longer saints without magic.

Magic flows in silence,
Bringing us things in the river of time.
And taking things away without our noticing.

Magic flows in silence,
Whispering to wise men
Who listens with open minds:
“Cherish what you have.”

Magic flows in silence,
Magic flows among us.
