Oceans filled with tears
I walk down the battlefield
Let's give peace a chance
Winter sparks a day
I see beauty in all ways
For souls passed away
The cold freezing snow
Cold snow like a river flow
Rustling in the trees
Snowflakes slowly fall
The soft wind blows as they gleam
A gentle moonlight
Outside it's freezing
Snowflakes are falling lightly
In the silent night
Snowflakes fall from sky
They fall so peaceful and light
So silent, but bright
Drifting snow outside
Joyful kids singing carols
Silent trees around
Moonlight is clear, above us
A calm, silent night
A calm winter breeze
A season of happiness
Spent with family
Peace is wonderful
It is filled with warmth and love
Makes the world better
Silent peace is beauty
Winter snow is smooth as silk
The stars show us light
HERE IS A SHORT VIDEO ABOUT PEACE:
Snowflakes in the sky, snow Brushing through the dark night,
Like beautiful stars.
In winter we love
The beauty inside of us
And make peace come true
Quiet peaceful night
Snow floating down silky smooth
Outside by the fire
Drinking coffee with friends
Christmas is finally here
Stars that shine brightly
I believe, that we need peace
Peace is hope, believe
Too cold I can't sleep
The sun raised, evreything changed
And start a good day
Winter beauty love
Stars that shine bright I believe
Peace is possible.
A beautiful night
Snowflakes fly high in the sky
Stars shine peacefully
The joyful winter
Beautiful snow and quiet peace
