Rhymes and Reasons

So you speak to me of sadness
And the coming of the winter
Fear that is within you now
That seems to never end

And the dreams that have escaped you
And the hope that you′ve forgotten
And You tell me that you need me now
And You want to be my friend
And you wonder where we're going
Where′s the rhyme and where's the reason
And it's you cannot accept
It is here we must begin
To seek the wisdom of the children
And the graceful way of flowers in the wind

For the children and the flowers
Are my sisters and my brothers
Their laughter and their loveliness
Would clear a cloudy day
Like the music of the mountains
And the colours of the rainbow
They′re a promise of the future
And a blessing for today

Though the cities start to crumble
And the towers fall around us
The sun is slowly fading and it′s colder than the sea
It is written from the desert
To the mountains they shall lead us
By the hand and by the heart
And They will comfort you and me
In their innocence and trusting
They will teach us to be free

For the children and the flowers
Are my sisters and my brothers
Their laughter and their loveliness
Would clear a cloudy day
And the song that I am singing is a prayer to non-believers
Who come and stand beside us, we can find a better way.
