It wasn't here

I dreamed a world where beings live in peace
And hold each other dear.
It wasn't here.

I dreamed a world where all are loved as 
Children of the Universe.
It wasn't here.

I dreamed a world where gods do not exist
And goodness lives.
It wasn't here.

A world where life in all its forms 
Is left in peace to live.
It wasn't here.

A world where war was never dreamed
And reason rules.
It wasn't here.

I wish it was!

Ann Meharg loves the English language (which is just as well because she can speak no other), loves to make people laugh and loves writing verse when inspired.
