At the same time

I thought today I’d invite you to reflect on these beautiful lyrics by Barbara Streisand:

Think of all the hearts
Beating in the world
At the same time
Think of all the faces And the stories they could tell
At the same time

Think of all the eyes
Looking out into this world Trying to make some sense of what we see
Think of all the ways we have of seeing
Think of all the ways there are of being

Think of all the children Being born into this world
At the same time
Feel your love surround them
Through the years they’ll need to grow At the same time

Just think of all the hands
That will be reaching for a dream
Think of all the dreams that could come true Yes if the hands we’re reaching with
Could come together
Joining me and you

When it comes to thinking of tomorrow We must protect our fragile destiny
In this prescious life there’s no time to borrow
The time has come to be a family

Think of all the love
Pouring from our hearts
At the same time
Yes think of all the light our looks Can shine and grow this world
At the same time

At the same time
Yes think what we’ve been givin And yet think what we could lose
All of life is in our trembling hands
It’s time to overcome our fears
And join to build a world that loves and understands

It helps to think of all the hearts
Beating in the world
And hope for all the hearts
Healing in the world There’s a healing music in our hearts
Beating in this world
At the same time
