A Place of Love...

Twenty million, one thousand and eighty one trav'lers*
How do you measure the blessing we find here?

Twenty million, one thousand and eighty one trav'lers
So do we treasure the ones we find here!

Twenty million, one thousand and eighty one trav'lers
A place to find a commonality we never knew

Twenty million, one thousand and eighty one trav'lers
A place where this life of ours is affirmed to be true

How about truth?
How about truth?
How about truth?
You know you are loved!

Acceptance and truth
Acceptance and truth

Twenty million, one thousand and eighty one trav'lers
But numbers just don’t begin to tell the whole tale
Acceptance stemming from place of belonging
Understanding and hope portrayed without fail

In truth that I learned
In times that I cried
In gender discerned
And shame finally died?

It's Time Now - To Sing Out
Sing without fear
Let’s hope and pray
For a life without fear

More than mere stories
More than mere stories
More than mere stories
To we who would see

More than just stories
More than just stories
More than just stories
But life to you and me

I finally feel…finally feel right
Much of that came when I began to write
Gotta write,gotta write, gotta write
And I’m thankful this site
