The Only Thing



~~~

Let me be a little light

Into someone else’s night

Let me be the tiny spark

That causes blaze to start

Let me speak in words seen true

If it is the only thing I do

~~~

Let me be the song of lark

As dawn breaks upon the dark

Let me be the kindest word

That heals when it is heard

Let me paint a world less blue

If it is the only thing I do

~~~

Let me offer a love assured

Learn to give a little more

Let me see, only the “we”

In every face that I see

Let me give a hope that’s new

If it is the only thing I do

~~~

Let me be a welcomed sign

On the path so hard to find

Let me give more than I take

And love just for loving’s sake

Let me be a blessing too

If it is the only thing I do

~~~

    wonderful message – be the person that makes someone else have a better day…

  4. You are more than you can know to anyone your life touches…. me, your friends, even your readers. The world itself would definitely feel the loss of you without these precious gifts you so give so easily. My heart is blessed from this poem!

  5. To give more than one takes is to live a blessed life my friend. Lovely work!

    So beautiful Brad. Filled with kindness and love every line of every verse.

    “Let me be the kindest word
    That heals when it is heard
    Let me paint a world less blue
    If it is the only thing I do”

    Think of the difference that would make. Gorgeous piece my dear friend. Sending warm hugs and love in overflowing baskets. 🤗❤️🦋💝Jonikins
