Where the soothing breeze caresses your cheek And the reticent strong willed encourage the meek. Where the wings of the butterfly cry out with delight And the stillness of the lake reflects the moonlight. Where the kiss of true love falls gently across lips And the passionate glance launches ten thousand ships.
Where the warm summer sand sinks beneath each small toe And the spray of the ocean beckons you not to go. Where the fire in the hearth holds you deep in it's trance And the love from afar finally asks you to dance. Where the flowers retain bloom from summer to spring And the kiss from a rainbow causes your heart to sing.
Where the innocence of a child is never brought into question And the fears they may face never involve a weapon. Where every man, woman and child live together as one And the days have true meaning with each rising of the sun. Where the weeks are not counted by work days of seven And the knowledge of where you are...truly is heaven.

I want to echo everybody else's thoughts on this. Absolutely beautiful!
