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

    someone needs to set the right tone, so why not be that person…

  6. To focus on giving with no thought of getting is truly selflessness. These words made me feel so warm and fuzzy, and connected to you if there is even a tiny bit of you in them.

    What an uplifting poem! Instead of thinking, “What’s in it for me?” I like the attitude of “What can I do for someone else?”
