Just listen
Listen to the warm wind
That whistles in the trees
Listen to the summer day
That sings with birds and bees

                   Listen to the ocean waves
                   That crash upon the sand
                   Listen to the seagulls cry
                   As they fly far over land

                             Listen to the children play
                             As they scamper free and wild
                             Listen to a mother’s voice
                             That cautions her young child

Listen to the music sounds
That play into the night
Listen to the people dance
Until the morning light

         Listen to the rainfall
         That strikes a roof of tin
         Listen to the lightening
         That makes a mighty din

                   Listen to the dog bark
                   That keeps you up at night
                   Listen to the rooster’s crow
                   That wakes you at first light

Listen to the daily life
That happens all around
Listen to the earth move
The pulse of life in sound

                                       Listen to my heartbeat
                                       That longs for only you
                                       Listen to my tender words
                                       I pledge my love to you
