Dream for Peace

I always have a dream
Flowing into my veins like a stream
Throughout my life I wander about
Having deep faith to reach it, no doubt
I always keep it in my heart and mind
I am sure one day I will get it and find


I dream of a new world with no pain
A peaceful world, not insane
I dream of a world  full of peace and love
Where birds never stop singing and fluttering above
I dream of a world where lovers never separate
Forever together united by fate


I dream of a world full of trees and flowers
Where love, peace and brotherhood it’s only powers
I dream all people in one language they all speak
Where love ties and peaceful relations never break
I dream the world becomes fair and just
Where wars and conflicts becomes a very far past


I dream that all people have the same feelings
All people become true human beings
I hope my dream will come true one day
And  “peace” becomes the only word people can say
