Stop to say Hello

Stop to say Hello

Please stop to say hello

Look into my eyes and see my soul

Look with your heart and you will see mine

You can know me, if you choose

Don’t rush past

Stop to say hello

By chance we will see

We are the same

Although you are you

And I am me

We are human beings

I laugh as you laugh

You cry as I cry

We feel. have hopes, dreams, and desires

If you rush by without a hello

You will never know me nor I you

Our lives will continue, of course

But lacking the knowledge

We could give

One to the other

As siblings of

The Human race

We are blessed we stopped to say Hello.
