And When

And When

And when I’m placed into this life

A promise I will keep

To love another as myself

To try, to hope, to seek

 

And when the noise gets much too loud

A quiet place, I’ll find

To open up my heart with love

Awaken to my blind

 

And when I see as you see me

And you as I instead

A gentle trust will fill my heart

Sweet joyfulness, I’ll spread

 

And when I take the time to know

Why you were placed here too

I’ll figure out, I’ll find a way

And treasure you, I do

 

And when I breathe my very last

Inspired by this quest

True legacy, I’ll leave behind

I was, but just a guest
