If Only - Poem by Olga Horpe
If only I could make this world a better place to live,
where people don’t know selfishness, but only how to give.
If only I could stop all wars, see enemies shake hands.
If only I could feed a child that starves in foreign lands.
If only I could heal the sick and make them well again,
in a world that’s fit and healthy, and never knowing pain.
If only I could bring some joy to those who grieve alone,
I’d pray to god and ask if I can take their loved ones home.
If only I could reach in every corner of the earth,
I’d rake out all the evil, only keeping what is worth.
If only I had power to hold this world within my hand,
I’d make this place a heaven on earth, a perfect wonderland.
Though all these things seem out of reach, I do not dream alone,
If only is a dream in every heart in every home.
