A recent post got me to thinking about a favorite poem of mine. I definitely did not write it…I hope to one day meet this anonymous person.
One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake a dream.
One tree can start a forest
One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship
One hand clasp lifts a soul
One star can guide a ship at sea
One word can frame the goal.
One vote can change a nation
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes out darkness
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey
One word must start each prayer
One hope will raise our spirits
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom
One heart can know what’s true
One life can make the difference
You see it’s up to YOU!
