grant us peace



Whenever I think of peace
I think of our innocence before 9/11
along with profound words and dreams of our Peaceful brother John Lennon
I hear his voice ring, power to the people, Let's Give peace a chance
and I IMAGINE foreign leaders in Something like a romance or slow dance
as Across the universe adversaries sing, I wanna Hold your hand
Abolishing wars, a good day sunshine revolution spreading throughout our renewed lands
We all Come together Singing Happy Christmas, war is over, Here comes the sun
our children's futures starting over , Blissful golden slumbers have begun
Let it be that tolerance, Reverence, respect, Here there and everywhere reins
We all shine on, forgetting our yesterday had helter skelter mind games

When I think of peace in my life I think it won't be long, Tomorrow never knows. You may say I am a dreamer too
But, We can work it out. Don't let me down. Because All we need is love for all our dreams of world Peace to come true

Thanks so much Mimi for allowing me be a part of this unified cry for peace. we so desperately need it.

You're right - I completely get it! Not only this, but I also had an idea to compose a poem using Beatles/ John Lennon songs! Hehe glad I checked your blog first, love the poem - great last sentence. I love the words of John Lennon. Let's see if I can come up with something now :)

John Lennon, Barack Obama and a cute dog all on my screen at the same time! If your blog today doesn't reassure everyone that all CAN be very right with the world, I don't know what would. (Good work on the poem.)

I love the way the words were all woven together into a "song" on your blog. Very very cool.

Thank you for participating.
Peace to you and yours,
Mimi
