This is for New York City Angels

So you speak to me of sadness
And the coming of the winter
Fear that is
within you now
It seems to never end
And the dreams that have escaped
you
And the hope that youve forgotten
You tell me that you need me
now
You wanAnd you wonder where were going
Wheres the rhyme and wheres the reason
And
its 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
Could clear a cloudy day

Like the music of the
mountains
And the colours of the rainbow
Theyre 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 its colder than the
sea

It is written from the desert
To the mountains they shall lead
us
By the hand and by the heart
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
Could clear a cloudy day

And the song that I am
singing
Is a prayer to non believers
Come and stand beside us
We can
find a better way.
