Peace Peace

Rachel is crying for her children
She refuses to be comforted
From beyond the grave she cries
Through the centuries
Her tears flow
Hagar cries too
From beyond the grave and
Their tears intermingle
The tears of the mothers
Grieving over dead sons and daughters
Weeping over war
They try to shake us
Wake us
They see our promise
They prophesy our hope
From the place of eternity
Our mothers whisper
Peace Peace
Shalom Salaam
Can you hear it?
