We look to the same sky

We look to the same blue sky
With our different hued eyes
Seeking out our dreams
And our basic human needs

We swim in the same sea
Like fishes on the reef
A lost lonely island
And here we all stand

Earth floats in space
Hearts meet in grace
I will hold your hand
You and I will understand

And while those who bicker, bicker
The wise gets younger and younger
The children, in all innocence
Embrace all differences...

Listen to their laughter...

  12. Hello everyone,
    Thank you for your kind words on this subject which seems to move all of us in the same direction.

    Sorry, I am so exhausted from Willow's Ball that I needed some time to recover.

    Mary will tell you, it was a blast.

    And that is an understatement!
