What can I share with you? What do I posses that is of value? What have I learned as I lived? I would give it all to you if I knew how. The quiet moments in early morning The walks along a lonely seashore The enchantment of a starry evening The fascination over a spider spinning its intricate web The industry of a bee gathering pollen These are some of the treasures of my life. But I have known the sorrow and heartache in the world Suffering from war and famine Loneliness from having no friends What can I do to help? We are not in this by ourselves Your pain is my pain Your joy is my joy Though we may know it not Caught in our sadness or ambition What will bring us together? I think it is community I seek Spiritual friendship, deep sharing Knowing we are not alone on the journey Our separate egos are but an illusion There is a unity in all creation We are one with a community of life.
