Take away these our tears hidden deep from within,
Let them rain down on our faces like drops on leaves.
Please release their power, pain, fear and sadness,
From pains past that leave scars that only we know.
Stop the endless wars with streams of bloody hate,
Replace with rivers of love to flow between us all.
Note it is not to some divine being we ask this of,
But each other across the world, wherever we are.
Here is our white flag and hear our united words,
Enough, peace on Earth, to life that calls it home.
