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.

A Special Place of Peace

Closing our eyes and picturing someplace special,
a place where we feel calm, can help us to relax.
Even if it is just for a moment, it may be all that we
need to remember what is important to us.
Remembering our priorities, it's important to
remember to let little things that don't really matter go.
This just may give us the composure to
turn the tide of the moment around.
A great way to refocus and feel peace of mind is to share the
universal wish "May Peace Prevail On Earth." This calming,
transforming expression of hope has been translated into almost
every language. Peace poles bearing these uplifting words in native
tongues can be found throughout the world. When we whisper, pray
or meditate upon these simple words we can change our perception.
When a moment is carrying your thoughts and emotions somewhere
you don't want to go, stop, take a deep breath and whisper "May
Peace Prevail On Earth," knowing you are never alone - at any
moment many others are sharing the very same wish.
