Could I catch the drops of rain
and make from them a pond
to swim in during the summer months
and in the winter skate upon?
Could I take a single grain of wheat
and spread it across the great plains
to make the hungry full again
and take care of all their pains?
Could I take a small seedling
that seems to have no purpose at all
and plant it and make a great tree
that bears fruit as it grows tall?
Could I capture a single lightning bug
and hold it in my hand
to light a path along the way
of even just one blind man brightening up his day?
Could I take a single thought and empower it with who I am
and not be bothered by what other people see
or cater to who they want me to be
but stand fearlessly and be authentically me?
Could I take a leap of faith
and boldly carry on
reinvent for me a brand-new life
now that the old one has gone?
Could I put forth endless smiles
in place of sorrowful frowns
lighten up a single heart this dreary night
to take away the darkness take away the fright?
Could I take you in my thoughts
just this one last time
and remind the world that although you're gone
you'll remain forever mine?
