RAYA EVE

 

MUSINGS ON RAYA EVE

Was it only just the fast began?
So full of promise the hate will end;
With festive joys fast drawing near
So full of forgiveness filled with cheer.

But not for long the dreams of peace
So full of hope the war will cease;
For human memory with so much space
So full of thought but little grace.

No wonder then we yearn for years
When there was time to stand and stare,
With space for castles in the air,
When life was bare but filled with care,
With friends for real and friendships fair.

No wonder then the tears and fears
The fast will end, the feast will cease;
For human thought so quick to change
So filled with transience, so full of range.
No wonder then we yearn for peace!
