(for Bob Marley)
Waiting all day for a glimpse of your face
and, in dreams, at night waiting for your grace;
O Love, where is your selfless and pure light
to show us the path, in this maze of vicious life?
Insidious hearts are in sheer abundance,
vilifying the world with their carnal dance;
O Love, of late the glow we see in you
has become frail and with an emptiness stained too.
The world is being shred to pieces by want
and poverty on one side while lust and
decadent greed on the other; O Love
show us the equal worth of our life, from above!
O Love, sacred Love, go and turn your selfless shade on
and show us, how to live in harmony as one!
