Thursday's words

 

If I Could

© 

Published: August 2017

If I could catch a rainbow,
I'd do so just for you
So you could share its beauty
On the days you're feeling blue.

If I could, I'd buy an island
You could call it your very own,
A place to find serenity,
Where you could be alone.

If I could take your troubles
I'd throw them in the sea,
But all these things I'm finding
Are impossible for me.

'Cause I can't buy an island
Nor catch a rainbow fair,
So I'll just do what I do best:
Be someone who's always there.

Dearest Jo-Anne,
DREAMS that all of us have at times...
Indeed, IF we could perform little miracles for loved ones, we would do so.
Great poem b Lydia C. Dunne!
Hugs,
Mariette

That's all that counts in the end, being there for those we love. Wonderful poem, timely.

Katie Isabella said...

I agree with that poem. I try to be there and I have often wished others were for me. A few years ago, they were.

I think this is how all moms feel about their children.

Being there for someone else is the most important thing of all.
