The Peace Poem by John Denver

21 Mar

 There’s a name for war and killing

there’s a name for giving in

when you know another answer

for me the name is sin

but there’s still time to turn around

and make all hatred cease

and give another name to living

and we could call it peace

 *

And peace would be the road we walk

each step along the way

and peace would be the way we work

and peace the way we play

 *

And in all we see that’s different

and in all the things we know

peace would be the way we look

and peace the way we grow

 *

There’s a name for separation

there’s a name for first and last

when it’s all for us or nothing

for me the name is past

but there’s still time to turn around

and make all hatred cease

and give a name to all the future

and we could call it peace

 *

And if peace is what we pray for

and peace is what we give

then peace will be the way we are

and peace the way we live

 *

Yes there still is the time to turn around

and make all hatred cease

and give another name to living

and we can call it peace
