Empathy Among The Species


Intelligence in Earth bound creatures

Emotions of love, friendship, and compassion

Understanding between the species

Respect of life mutually rationed


Dolphins, whales, apes, and humans

Communication among thinking brains

Maybe, just maybe someday

We’ll know each other by names


From Father Heaven

And Mother Earth

We’re all born of love

Custodians of heavenly work


A universal language

Written in the pages of love

They say, “What goes around, comes around”

Remember watchful stars above


We belong to the Earth

Not it to us

Life here is a gift

Must we argue and fuss?


There’s a life-force in everything

The steady tick of the clock

Like the heartbeat of time

Even between a tree and rock


Compassion for all things

Love grows from many pieces

A glorious day it’ll be

Empathy among the species
