If I Had The Power

Poem by Joseph T. Renaldi

If I only had the power to influence others,
To enable and instill a cheerful way,
I would not render a single thing to them,
But I would take some burdensome things away.

I would alleviate all the anxiety from their mind,
Each pain and sorrow I would have relieved,
And every word or deed that caused a single pain,
And every moment that they solely grieved.

I would have all their troubles eradicated forever -
Lost and absorbed like the things that can not be,
And their future days would be joyful and peaceful,
For only pleasant and honorable things will be the key.

Now that is what I would really like to do -
If I only had the power to do this for you.
