If Only… - Poem by Lilibeth Sacmar Apat

If we can find the time to listen
To others on what they have to say
If we can find the time to reach out
To those who are in need
If we can find the time to heal
The wounds in other’s hearts
What a satisfaction it will be
When the end of the day comes.


If we can find the strength to hold back
Words better left unsaid
If we can find the time to share
With others what we have
If we can find the time to make
More friends than foes
It’ll be a better world to live in
And God will be seen in us all.
