if there were (1982)

if there were words
for all that we feel
a page could bring comfort
and help one’s heart heal
through wisdom conveyed
in the thoughts it revealed

and if there were stars
in every night sky
for passionate lovers
to be guided by
the sound of a kiss
would consume every sigh

and if there were peace
through all of this land
then children of all men
could walk hand in hand
conquering hatred
by deed, not command

and if there were faith
within each of us
if we but believed
as a matter of trust
in God and the heavens
and did as we must…

together with courage
the words we would find
to comfort each heart
to love, to be kind
and make our own peace
with whomever we find.
