A Dream Divine...

last night I had a dream divine....

i dreamt of love and purity
forgiveness and of unity
and found it filled my heart
with unbound tenderness

i dreamt of hate no more
nameless feelings at its core
and found it filled my soul
with unbound lovingness-

i felt a heart so pure and tender
unfold its parts in sweet surrender
and found it filled me to the core

now that my soul had been revived
gave all of me to those deprived
and wished i could have given more-

i glanced at her who glared at me
with anger and suspicion in her eyes,
and hugged her nonetheless with love
until at last she cried

i witnessed her regarding me
with no more hatred in her stare,
she smiled at me 'tween tears of love
for someone finally cared-

i dreamt of all these things last night
alien and intangible to me-
and it was then I realized,
the hand of God touched me.

If everyone could've felt the hand of God touching them, the world would be a beautiful place.
But i like what people can do for each other- the essence of your poem, to be the most fascinating!

This is hauntingly beautiful, if only those who preach hatred and war could read it and understand...
