One night I had a dream,
I found myself in a whole new world,
A world full of smiling faces,
A common bond binding all,
A bond of pure love and harmony.
No differences, no quarrels,
No hatred, no violence,
No racism, no castesism,
No weapons, no wars,
Just eternal peace everywhere.
Flowers blooming all around,
The land turning into a flushing meadow,
Huge trees sheltering the smaller ones,
And streams of fresh water floing through them,
Man and nature in complete harmony.
Every breath taken sheer pleasure,
Every moment spent engraved on the mind,
Perhaps it was not just another dream,
It's a wish, a prayer, and a hope.
