If It's Within My Reach


If it's within my reach
I will wipe tears in every heart
A light in their eyes

Shelter to the homeless
A roof in rainy night
Affection to the afflicted
Smile to the broken spirit

Son to childless families
Laughter in their lungs
Comforter of the widows
Nightingale to soften their sleep

A shoulder to the weak
Like lion in zion
Hope to the despair
A light in their tunnel

Dead to erase
Pain to ease
Dark cloud to sunny sky
And certainly chaos to peace

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
