Jonathan van der Lugt – Song of Peace and Hope

Two worlds, one planet
One sky, no hope
My heart drowns in sorrow
Knowing you are out there on your own

I chase my future
You left your past
Not knowing if tomorrow
You will be free at last

Facing death on open waters
All your hope is running dry
And I struggle with the never-ending why

I’m trying to write to you a song of peace and hope
Of love that’s strong enough to save you
But when I think about the pain with which you cope
I can’t find the words although I try to
I can’t find the words although I try


Peace, black coffee, and a cheesecake.  ☘

John Lennon – Imagine

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

 

Peace, my friends and readers.
