Dawn

dawn-in-bahrain.jpg

It’s just after dawn in Bahrain.
In a little under an hour the sun will rise on Gaza.
I’m minded of Lennon’s immortal words:

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will live as one…

  1. I am reminded of that immortal ballad
    When I get older losing my hair
    many years from now
    will you still be sending me a valentine
    birthday greeting, bottle of wine
    If I’d been out till quarter to three
    would you lock the door
    Will you still need me
    Will you still feed me
    When I’m sixty-four

    You’ll be older too
    And if you say the word
    I could stay with you

    I could be handy mending a fuse
    when your light have gone
    You can knit a sweater by the fireside
    Sunday mornings, go for a ride
    Doing the garden, digging the weeds
    Who could ask for more
    Will you still need me
    Will you still feed me
    When I’m sixty-four

    Every summer we can rent a cottage on the
    Isle of Wight, if it’s not too dear
    We shall scrimp and save
    Grandchildren on your knee
    Vera, Chuck, and Dave

    Send me a postcard, drop me a line
    stating point of view
    indicate precisely what you mean to say
    yours sincerely wasting away
    Give me your answer fill in a form
    mine forever more
    Will you still need me
    Will you still feed me
    When I’m sixty-four
