The Ceasefire

The Ceasefire



     A tiny hand in the car window said it all

     Five little fingers waiving through the mist

     I waved back

     The child waived again and again

     Everyone is Mammy or Daddy

     Given only love

     A river of flowing love

     Take it

     Let it flow

     To you and me

     And everyone we know

     Those who suffered and survive

     Teach us the joy of being alive
