A Peaceful Place

There must be a beautiful morning somewhere A
dawn lit by justice and judgment is fair A place
where a helping hand is held out An ear that will
listen stands poised and devout A place you can
go when your heart needs attending A place where
a spirit gets healing and mending A place where
love's fire burns bright day and night And in
from the cold you may warm by its light There
must be a brilliant evening somewhere Where the
sun finally sets on pain and despair Where the
coming of night is not filled with grief And
comforting sleep brings you joyful relief A place
where the sunset is apt to reflect A day without
malice, without disrespect A place where the only
tears shed, are for joy And a heart is not
battered and bounced like a toy There must be a
wonderful day somewhere
In a place filled with love and a great need to
care A place where the burdens of conflict are
lifted Where love is a skill and all lovers are
gifted Where daily are spoken the words that
support And every mistake is not met with retort
A place where the land has not soaked up the
blood Where honor and truth are not cast in the
mud A place where the children are not left alone
Where Sisters and Brothers may come to atone
Where homeless and helpless don't cower in fright
Where the hearts and the minds of the world can
unite So you set on a journey to seek out this
land With compass and map and a vision so grand
To find peace and comfort in a world that's so
new Where waters are crystal and skies are so
blue With showers that cleanse and winds that
refresh Where the spirit is fed and not just the
flesh But search as you may, what you'll find to
be true That it cannot be found, until it's found
within you.
