The Impossible

September 11, 2009
You can’t take the light from the sun
Or the blue from the sky
The water from the ocean
Or the tear from the eye

You can’t tear love from the heart
Or the shine from a star
The breeze from the wind
Or the sounds from a guitar

You can’t take the dreams from the mind
Or the smile from the lips
The cheerfulness from laughter
Or the joy from someone’s kiss

You can’t take steps from a dance
Or silence from the quiet
The fluff from a cloud
Or the madness from a riot

You can’t take the meaning from words
Or the exhilaration from fun
The personalities from people
Or the loneliness from one

You can’t take the gratitude from a Thank You
Or the flight from a bird
The height from the altitude
Or the noise from the heard

You can’t take the color from a rainbow
Or the sugar from the sweet
The melody from a song
Or the rhythm from a beat

And all these things are undeniably true
Just exactly how you can NEVER take away yourself from you

Wow! I really enjoyed this poem. I believe I liked it so much because it is sincere. “And all these things are undeniably true, / Just exactly how you can NEVER take yourself away from you.” This was my favorite stanza because it contains an important massage. Too many people these days are trying to be somebody they are not. Also, I loved the lyrics! “You can’t take the light from the sun, / Or the blue from the sky, / The water from the ocean, / Or the tear from t... (more »)
