Searching…

Searching…

What is peace – does anyone really know?

I’ve searched so hard, but it evades me so!

Will I ever know its sweet embrace,

Its soothing touch, its saving grace?

Or will I just fumble from day to day,

‘Till I can dream no more and fade away?

The Peace Poem by John Denver

 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

The Peace Poem

The Peace Poem

By John Denver

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

Skytrain, high train, charging, charging

Skytrain

Skytrain, high train, charging, charging,

Fly train – my train; harken, harken,

To its whistle, blowing, blowing,

Life’s so fast; it’s going, going,

Ebbing from our bodies, groaning,

As Time’s cold scythe cuts through the gloaming

*

Listen, listen; I hear it calling, 

Ignore it at your peril – warning!

Before your days are gone and over,

Join me in this bright sky rover 

Across the heavens we’ll travel, listening,

To the sounds of eternity, whispering, 

Within our hearts, our chi resplendent,

At one with god, in peace, never ending.
