The Heart of an Elephant

I watched an elephant show today

And seeing all the love they had to convey

I wished the world could be like they

The heart of an elephant is special one
Full of love and muddy fun

Please don't shoot them anymore

To sell their ivory on a foreign shore

An elephant's memory is a precious one

Remembering the knife and the gun

These elephant angels that I see

So plainly here on TV
 send messages to you and me

Across the miles that's what I see

Kindness is the key 

But Oh that an elephant sees the heart

In a family of love never to part

We do have much to learn, in turn 

From the ways of an elephants heart

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
