Virtual Lake America


A lake of joyful tears, our nation has a new lake
The nation cried for joy and rivers of sweet tears formed
On Tuesday, November 4th with joyful tears of hope
And redemption, a nation reborn in hopes of a dream
My tears and your tears, the world's tears joined others
Virtual tear-rivers of salty smiles and expectant spirits, sharing
Remembering the Dream, fear overcome, our trust in humanity
Tears that ran down many cheeks, the young and old, no color or race
Religion and creed, of men and women and children alike
Tears of brotherhood and sisterhood, rejoicing, rejoicing, rejoicing!
Humanity elated, foreign lands, watchful eyes in America's awe
Embraced the rebirth of hope when Americans prevailed under God
Our nation welcomes a new leader for the world, a global simpatico
To resonate with the diverse forces of our multicultural imperative
A valiant soul with a sincere, steady and authentic spirit
Tears celebrated a new dawn, rivers of joyful tears and salty smiles
Warm hearts, warm hugs, kisses and even more smiles
Our moment of truth and healing of deep wounds, owning our past
Strangers no more, now in solidarity
Virtual lake of happy tears, a profound celebration of the spirit
It was fate electing the moral imperative of peace
For the survival of reason and for the victory of democracy
For the vindication of our Founders and for the yearnings of the just
For the celebration of the spirit in reconciliation
America the Beautiful now has a virtual lake of joyful tears
