Could You…

by | Jun 9, 1998 | Poem, Thankfulness, Treasure

Could you describe the sky to a person without sight, 
the gift of shades and shadows you receive each day and night?

Could you depict the freedom of walking down the street 
to a person who has never had the use of their two feet?

Could you express the comfort of sleeping in a bed 
to someone who does not have a place to lay their head?

Could you explain the pleasure of a satisfying meal to a child 
who has never known the fullness that you feel?

Could you, in all honesty, with good and truthful measure, 
say that you are thankful and consider life a treasure?

Could you?
