“From a distance, we all have enough,
And no one is in need.
And there are no guns, no bombs and no disease,
No hungry mouths to feed.
From a distance, we are instruments
Marching in a common band.
Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace.
They are songs of every man.
From a distance, you look like my friend,
Even though we are at war.
From a distance, I just can’t comprehend,
What all this fighting is for.
From a distance, there is harmony,
And it echoes through the land.
And it’s the hope of hopes, it’s the love of loves.
It’s the heart of every man.”
– An extract of the lyrics from the song “From A Distance” as sung by Bette Midler.
[Songs which are meaningful can hold much wisdom and can stand the test of time. One of such songs, I opine is the aforementioned , which was very written. Words and rhythm of the song resonates with my soul.]
