If Not

What makes a joke

If not the laughter?

What is a dream

If not what we are chasing after?


What do the stars hold

So closely to their heart?

Why does the painter paint

If not to make art?


When we dance and sing

Are we alone together?

What would hold our hearts in unison

If not for Love's tether?


We fight each other

Because we feel we must-

But who will we fight

When we return to the dust?


Let us sing, let us dance

Let us Dream and romance,

For what should Life be

If not the Ghost of a Chance?

Our world
