A Special Kind of of Country
A unique kind of country I would seek.
To me, it stands out well above the rest.
Of qualities appealing most to me,
this country does afford the very best.
Compassion, love, concern and care are spread.
Each person does his best for one another
The value of each man is measured by
the way in which he tries to help his brother.
I must admit this sounds like fantasy,
And it would be most difficult to find.
Mere wishful thinking or imagination?
If so, it will stay hidden in my mind
But if this special country does exist,
and not just in the threads of flowing rhyme,
it is located out and far beyond
the limitations of all measured time.
From nowhere it is countless miles away.
To seek it might seem like a futile quest
To find it you can start from any place
from north or south, or from the east or west.
Perhaps it’s in a supernatural realm,
which means that on this earth it can’t be found.
And so, my soul, be patient, wait to seek
until my flesh lies buried in the ground.
