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
