Today I sat out in the sun enjoying the Sun and Peacefulness of my garden, as Summer graced my day… I am always sending out my gratitude and thanks to the Universe for all I have in my life.
Many around our world are not so fortunate, and my thoughts turned to all those Nations caught up with wars as innocents die, while just as many turn a blind eye.
I thought of those in other places, where they starve for lack of food and water..And my thoughts too went to the recent insane shootings in the USA. This world has so much turmoil and conflict. And yet here I was surrounded by Peace!..
I thought how many young children are having to fend for themselves as they are orphaned or abandoned around our world, their plights go unheard and unnoticed. And my heart wept in silent tears for all the Children of our World.. So out came my note book and pen… as I wrote this poem today.. As I thought how lucky we are…. and how many Children of our world Suffer.. And all of them need our Love..
The Time for Children
Mellow days lasing in the Sun
With gentle breeze Summer’s just begun
With meadow fields, and flowers wild
I sit with memories of a child.
Climbing hills and running fast
A childhood day forever lasts
Of tastes and smells and smiles of glee
If only a child we all could be.
To see the Earth with eyes anew
And trust the world not to be taboo
Where danger lurks around every bend
I wish the Universe a child could send
To show us where our race went wrong,
And bring back the Spirit of innocence song
Where children laughed and were unafraid
To respect and care throughout our days
But sadly we seem to have lost our way
Where no one listens to words we say
Respect is forfeited only for Gold
And Human life is bought and sold
And as mellow as my day is here in the Sun
I know of others sorrow because of the Gun
As innocent blood is spilled on ground
While my heart weeps in the silence of sound
Where are our hearts? Where have they gone?
What happened to our Children that grew up with Gun?
Enjoy every moment before it’s too late
Teach only love and let go of the hate
Remember the Children they are our Future too
And all are special including you
So nurture our Children and show them the way
Teach them to Love, and respect everyday
So as they grow older they won’t be so sad,
Knowing life dealt them harshness in a world that turned bad.
And someday they may sit and reflect as I do
On a World full of love instead of taboo.
