I Once Knew Everything

I once knew everything, but now,
I only know the autumn rain:
The world is so much simpler,
There is far less to explain

I don’t think it was vanity,
I’m pretty sure I knew it all:
But now, my only kinship is
With raindrops as they fall

One might think I had lost a lot,
But I don’t know if that’s the case –
Far better to feel beauty than
To gaze on evil’s leering face

I once knew all there was in books,
But now I only understand
That like the rain, we all must fall
And life is less – and more –
Than what we planned
