In between silences,A few words Fly in,Birds from farawaySkies of ideas,Carrying a new story,In sheer poetry.
Bring some melodyLessen the cacophonyCome,September,Heal the ailingBrighten the paling.String hearts together,Make tempers milder,Come,September,Let’s hear melodies,Begin soothing Heavy, hurtful memories.Come, September,Remind us our cheerAnd patienceAnd put our livesBack in forward gear.
Halt a moment,Stop! Save a child,Listen to the lament,Life for love is meant,Rise above discontent,Revise your intent,And choose to be,The One to helpTo nurture and care, And let each of usTo the ‘other’Be truly’God-sent’.
