It’s Time for Love

By Jay Wright

The world needs now more love, sweet love

These discord gaps we must get rid of

Take time to let friends know we care

Be kind to animals everywhere

With every child, let’s listen well

When with our boo, show, don’t just tell

Speak out for freedom, country, brag,

Stand, salute when they raise our flag

Our world needs now, more love than ever

This year let’s close this gap forever

For Valentine’s Day, let healing begin.

We can stop this worsening trend.
