Lyrics:

Childlike Faith In Childhood’s End
Existence is a stage on which we pass, a
sleep-walk trick for mind and heart:
it’s hopeless, I know,
but onward I must go
and try to make a start
at seeing something more than day-to-day
survival chased by final death.

If I believed this the sum
of the life to which we’ve come
I wouldn’t waste my breath.
Somehow, there must be more.
There was a time when more was felt than
known, but now, entrenched inside my sett,
in light more mundane, thought rattles
round my brain; we live, we die… and yet?

In the beginning there was order and
destiny but now that path has reached the
border and on our knees is no way to face
the future, whatever it be.
Though the forces which hold us in place
last through eons in unruffled grace
we, too, wear the face of creation

As anti-matter sucks and pulses
periodically the bud unfolds, the bloom
is dead, all space is living history.

It seems as though time must betray us,
yet we’re alive and though I see no God to save us still we
survive through the centuries of progress
which don’t get us very far.

And though dark is the highway
and the peak’s distance breaks my heart,
for I never shall see it, still I play my part,
believing that what waits for us is the
cosmos compared to the dust of the
past…

in the death of mere humans life shall
start!

    Beautiful and melodic notes penetrate my soul lifting it far into the heights of paradise. Your music always has the unique ability to unlock the doors of my heart giving it freedom to soar. Thank you for sharing this love woven piece.

  2. Sue Dreamwalker – Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
    Sue Dreamwalker says:

    I played your beautiful music while I read the lyrics.. such poignant words you shared..
    Your music swept me through my own childhood oh how we wish to re-capture those care-free days when we had not a worry ( if you were lucky ) and bounce with energy..

    ” It seems as though time must betray us,
    yet we’re alive and though I see no God to save us still we
    survive through the centuries of progress
    which don’t get us very far.”….

    And this sentence also got my attention

    “As anti-matter sucks and pulses
    periodically the bud unfolds, the bloom
    is dead, all space is living history.”….

    Earth rejuvenates and there is always a time for sleeping and a time for waking….. I think we came at this important stage of our Earth’s evolution to waken hearts… And Mino your music touches people’s hearts my friend…

    Beautiful 🙂
    Sue

  3. Oh Mino!! This is so beautiful. ..so poignant. The music brought tears to my eyes and the lyrics brought tears to my heart. Thank you, my friend for adding such beauty to my life…to the world. I feel so grateful to have heard this today. I wish you well…Many blessings ♡

Remember who you really are, conquer the world the way you always wanted to, and become the blessing to us all that you were meant to be.
    Erika Kind says:

    Another beautiful piece of a dream from Mihran’s factory! I can describe it any different… a dream which can be dreamed in so many ways depending on the situation we are in. Perhaps a little melancholic at the lower violin part, but very comforting and touching when the piano takes over… wow!!!

  6. Teagan Riordain Geneviene – Body in one place -- mind usually in another – I started the blog, Teagan's Books, as part of what I call my “grand experiment” in indie publishing. However, it has come to be quite dear to me. As an indie author, I share and promote the books of others as well as my own. My published works are epic fantasy, urban fantasy, and mysteries touched with magic. Most are set in other eras, probably because I never really felt at home in my own time. I hope you'll stop by, read something, enjoy it, and leave a note saying hello. http://teagansbooks.wordpress.com/about/
    teagan geneviene says:

    A poignant yet beautiful melody — just as childhood sometimes is. But the music is touched with tones of hope as well. Truly beautiful Mihran. Huge hugs.

  7. So soft and delicate music. Listening to music makes me feel like I was in a dream. A dream of a child-adolescent who is cheerful, but also reflects on the life and love.

    I loved my dear friend!.

  12. natasha – India – After completing my Masters in business managment and chartered accountancy, after setting up a printing business with my husband, I took a u turn in life. I started learning photography as a hobby, this is when I realised my true passion is photography. Married to a foodie I took up cooking after marriage and got very interested in it, for me cooking is like meditation, it's a stress buster. In this blog, I want to use photography to express my various interests in life... The idea of blogging and food photography came to me when I got pregnant and was put on bed rest for the initial four months, this is when I started documenting my recipes, during the later months I was only allowed to move around in the house. That is the time I decided to take up food photography. Thus I dedicate this blog to my darling son Kabir, it is all because of him that the blog became a reality. My special thanks to my dearest husband and guinea pig, Siddharth who eats everything I cook with so much love, it's because we got married that I have taken up cooking. A lot of contribution to this blog is by my parents who suggest me recipes, ideas, inspire me everyday. They are also my biggest critic and this help me achieve my idea of excellence. The reason I started documenting recipes was for my sister Ipshita and my sister in law Saloni and so a special thank you to both of you. Why the name "All Izz well"? It's a long story but I need to write it...there is a Bollywood movie called "3 idiots". I love this movie so much I must have seen it a minimum of 100 times ( I have no count, my family thinks so) It is a movie that changed my life. This movie is a comedy movie with many messages. It talks about following you passion in life, I learnt from it, "woh Kama Karoo jisme tumhara passion hai fir Kaam kaam nahi lagega, khel lagega." That I need to do what I love then work would be play for me, u need to be well educated in life not well trained. I so believe in it, I have taken up photography and I love it so much. Though being a chartered accountant, I didn't care to pick up my membership number as I never enjoyed that work. Another thing I learnt from the movie don't run behind success, strive for excellence, if you reach for excellence success will follow. My aim through this blog is excellence, I try to put up whatever I feel is up to the mark of excellence. Now about All Izz well, the protagonist of the movie tells his friends that when ever there is a problem put your hand on your heart and tell your heart " all Izz well", this will give you the strength to face the problem. When I was pregnant, one night I started bleeding heavily, with no doctors on call in the middle of night I wasted a lot of blood, it took us about an hour to get the prescribed medicine, all this time I kept on telling my self " all Izz well, I am going to have the baby." After all the medications and injections bleeding took a month to stop and I had all possible complications, during all this time I kept on telling my self " all Izz well" and slowly slowly every thing fell into place, the doctors where amazed by my recovery, my baby was born full term and 3.5 kgs, I could not believe when the doctor told me his weight in the operation room, first thing I told my self " all Izz well, yeah!" My husband told me I would sleep talk during those difficult days and tell my self " all Izz well, all Izz well...", thus that is why I gave this name to my blog....

  15. Baydreamer - Lauren Scott – United States – Welcome to my space where I share my poetry, short memoirs, and anything else that comes to mind. My husband and I have been married for thirty-three years, and not only do we still love each other, but we still like each other too. We have two adult children and I'm grateful that we're still a close family. Our furry family member is Copper, our 80-lb chocolate lab mix, and he sheds and drools a lot, but we love him just the same. I have published two collections of poetry: New Day, New Dreams and Finding a Balance. And my latest book that was published in September of 2021 is a memoir in verse and prose. When you visit, my wish is that you find something to take with you, but that you also find something enticing enough to keep bringing you back. I truly appreciate your visit. Love, Lauren

  19. restlessjo – Hi! I’m Jo! Johanna when I’m feeling posh, Jan to my Dad, and Joasiu to my Polish family. A bit of a mix-up, that’s me. The one constant, however, is my restless nature. I love to travel and to explore our world. It doesn’t have to be the big wide world. I can be ridiculously happy not too far from home, so long as I’m seeking new horizons. Of course I have a wish list, and it was to help me fulfil my dreams that I started to write travel guides for a venture called Simonseeks. I’d always kept a travel diary, and it was hugely satisfying to share my experiences and to make new friends who shared my passion for travel. Alas, Simonseeks hit a few troubles, but I still find myself writing about my travels. I’ve become addicted. I’d love to share them, and to make more friends. So, it has to be a blog- right? Or do I mean- write?

    Beautiful! 🙂

  20. Thank you for the music and poem!

    And though dark is the highway
    and the peak’s distance breaks my heart,
    for I never shall see it, still I play my part,
    believing that what waits for us is the
    cosmos compared to the dust of the
    past…

    Music will definitely continue through the Universes and the Worlds. Music never dies.

    Thank you again for sharing your gift.
