Another day went by
Crouching by the window
A mug of steamy coffee in one hand
Admiring the beauty of the structures
Rigid, mighty and soulless they rise
Astonished at the intelligence of mankind
Mere stone is turned into a precious gem
Trees to tables, chairs, and you name it
How beautifully have we moulded them
For pleasure and comfort of our senses!
Doorbell has replaced my alarm clock
But wait, where is everyone?
A sweet voice shouts “Breakfast!”
Same man brings the meals to my quarters
I feel like a pampered princess
I can hear the birds twitter and chirp
Vast blue skies roll out from my window
So much gets done even without
A word, movement or a sound
To feel safe and cared for is sweet
I am home again at long last
And look at the reality differently
My small worries measure up to nothing
How can I ever thank my country?
Some lessons we learn the hard way
Bhutan, Bhutan, oh my love, Bhutan
But it is love and care that wins
How fortunate I feel to be born here
Together we can assail all adversaries
Another day, another strong resolve.
