Favorite Quote:
"Even the smallest person can change the course of the future." -J.R.R. Tolkien

If only I could capture the softness of a hamster’s fur
And coat all my pillow in it
Oh, how softly I would sleep


If only I could grab the sparkle of a dog’s eye
Keep it as a night light
Keep it by my side


If only I could steal the colors of a lower
Splatter the darkened sky with them
Create a rainbow on my command


If only I could take the heat of the sun
And warm up all the cold hearts of this world


If only I could collect the speed of light
To zip across the world
There and back
There and back again


If only I could enlarge a flower
To wrap myself in its petals


If only I could snatch the wings of a bird
To fly away, be free
But still come back again


If only I could have the tail of a fish
To swim the depths of the ocean
To see the unknown


If only, if only
What would you do… if only?
