So you speak to me of sadness And the coming of the winter Fear that is within you now It seems to never end And the dreams that have escaped you And the hope that you’ve forgotten You tell me that you need me now You want to be my friend And you wonder where we’re going Where’s the rhyme and where’s the reason And it’s you cannot accept It is here we must begin To seek the wisdom of the children And the graceful way of flowers in the wind For the children and the flowers Are my sisters and my brothers Their laughter and their loveliness Could clear a cloudy day Like the music of the mountains And the colours of the rainbow They’re a promise of the future And a blessing for today Though the cities start to crumble And the towers fall around us The sun is slowly fading And it’s colder than the sea It is written from the desert To the mountains they shall lead us By the hand and by the heart They will comfort you and me In their innocence and trusting They will teach us to be free For the children and the flowers Are my sisters and my brothers Their laughter and their loveliness Could clear a cloudy day And the song that I am singing Is a prayer to non believers Come and stand beside us We can find a better way Words and music by John Denver
