If I Kissed You Again... - Poem by Eric Cockrell

if i kissed you again,
the rain would stop falling.
the great powers would lay down
their nuclear threats.
black and white men,
would work and walk together.
hungry mouths would be fed,
and the lost would be found.
churches would close,
and back doors would open.
the lines between nations,
would fade and dissolve.
old people would take in
children that have been orphaned.
the table would be endless,
the bowls would be filled.
every tear would be wiped,
hands would reach out with respect...
if i kissed you again...
the world would make sense!
