‘TAKE GOOD CARE OF ME’ Cries Mother Earth

© 2017 Words And Music Lisa Brockwell

(compassion, co-operation, respect, responsibility)

 

Lives they come and lives they go

All natural kingdoms leave their mark you know

And I have changed a great deal too

Still I am giving, taking care of you

 

I am ancient, giving for so long

I’m calling you, to help me carry on

Hear my cry; I’m crying loud you see

Help your world, take good care of me

 

Enjoy, enjoy all I give

It’s yours to share; I function, so you live

Just like you, I’m awesome and unique

One for all, and all for one, I seek

 

Hear me whisper throughout every breeze

“Nurture me, take good care of me”

Can you feel me as tides rise and fall?

Time to change and be responsible
