A Breath without a life

We need to breath to live
to see the the birds to fly
To feel the wind to leave
To let our dreams go by
but when we love no more
and heart's closed its door,
We breath without a life
No joy to heal life's strife.

We need to love and care
And show the joy of life
to those who need a cheer
To those who lived in strife
To those who need a care
and thirst a love so bless
that we can share our best
and meaning of life's quest.

    but when we love no more
    and heart's closed its door,
    We breath without a life

    And if only we could convince even 1/3 of mortal earth, to exercise this as their life's mantra....what a far more peaceful world....we would pass to our children!
    Very fine work..ROCK-ON!

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
