echoes of Love

The sun shining on my face
A stranger smiling in my direction
My reflection in the water
A song that takes me back

When a friend wipes away my tears
When my little one wraps my arms around her
When my boy kisses my nose
When tears burn my eyes upon witnessing beauty

The realization that people really are good
That we are all on the same path
That we all want to love and be loved
Realizing that it is already so

Listen
With the part of you that feels the whispers of the moon
With the sacred part of you that knows it is true
With the part of you that believes

Listen and you will hear
That love echoes all around us.

"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it - always." -Mahatma Gandhi
