Now this is weird and kinda crazy,
But why not play along with me.
Let your mind drift lazily
And hear this funny fantasy.
You love someone, of course you do.
It’s true of me; it’s true of you.
And in that person, pet, or thing,
Our love leads hearts to leap and sing.
Let’s take it just a wee step more.
For much of life is at its core
That force of love and its connection—
Tries this and that and then—correction!
It is a wondrous, dangerous dance!
Our life’s a melting snowflake’s chance.
Imagine that each bird and fish
Is someone else’s fondest wish.
And let your love suffuse it all.
And love each leaf of spring or fall.
No need for albatross on neck.
No need for threat of holy heck.
Just see the sea of love surround.
Just hear the music in the sound
Of every bird and buzzing bee.
It’s all a part of you and me.
Just smell the freshness in the rain.
Just let earth’s beauty fill your brain.
And then return it interest paid.
To all you meet before you fade.
Just leave the earth a bit improved.
When everyone becomes so moved.
Then gardens bloom across the world.
And love’s in every leaf unfurled.
A plan so simple cannot fail.
The wind blows full into your sail.
Your steps are easy now to take.
For world peace that you helped make.
