The hi-fi of life is not the sound
Of music blasting through the air.
It’s not the latest album or the band
That’s making all the charts this year.
The hi-fi of life is found in small things,
The moments that we often miss.
A smile from a stranger, a warm embrace,
A kind word spoken in good measure.
It’s the feeling of being loved and cared for,
The sense of belonging and being part.
It’s the joy of giving and receiving,
The simple pleasures that make life worth living.
So don’t search for the hi-fi of life in far-off places.
It’s right here, all around you.
Open your eyes and your heart,
And you’ll see it all around.
