Humming and strumming – TB

20 Sep

Earth is my home,
Human my nationality,
Silence my new language.
I’m listening.
Please play, for us,
Your instrument of peace.
When your hand reaches out,
It invokes friendship,
Delicately plucking many a fretted heartstring,
Whilst others could easily break one.
Never ever must you stop playing.

For Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens
