“The Tree Of Life”

O sweet spirit
Hear my prayer
Help these words
Heal someone, out there

I am but a voice
Just a cry in the air
But I sing nonetheless
Through this pain we share

————

O sweet friends
Come and dry your eyes
And hold each other
By this tree of life

I am angry and I am tired
Of this great divide
But I sing nonetheless
With love on our side

————

O sweet souls
Who feel broken now
We’ll heal together
Somewhere, somehow

Time and again
We have been let down
But we sing nonetheless
Still whole and still proud
