MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE

There is more than my mother
More than my father and I
More than my sister and brother
There is more than meets the eye

We all have lived for some time
There is something never seen
In living, loving or making rhyme
And the cosmos in between

There is more than you and me
More than our daughters and sons
More than our eyes can see
More than the planets and suns

There is more than starvation
More than killers and thieves
Let us hope there is salvation
Beyond this world that grieves

There is reason for existence
Perceived clearly or be it unclear
Believe this with persistence
Against all the pain and fear

Somewhere so far and distant
And down deep within us all
Lies a force applied every instant
Planets die, it will never fall

Having words, brains and a compass
Only humans, we cannot explain
Stars will burn out, eons will pass
Something shall always remain
