Imagine, for a moment,
that peace befell the land,
that all of humankind reached out
and held each other's hand.

Imagine, for an instant,
the touch of skin to skin
proved so powerful a feeling
every nation felt like kin.

Imagine, for a second,
love possessed the honest soul
of each citizen on the planet
and the world was truly whole.

Imagine, for a heartbeat,
how hatred would dissolve
and compassion rise up gallantly
with blazing-strong resolve.

Imagine, in your lifetime,
this chain of hope began
and the link at its inception
was your firm, extended hand.
