If I Could… (A Poem)

By Joyce Jacobo

[Author’s Note: A lot has happened over the past couple of days with my family. I’m still kind of dealing with it, so that’s why I haven’t been quite as active on WordPress as usual.]

If I could rearrange the stars in the heavens

   into fanciful new constellations

             just to make you smile

                                                            I would

If I could brush away the shadows

     which hang about your mind like cobwebs

          so dense they can obscure the world

                                                            I would

If I could create an enchanted mirror

   able to reflect the strength I see in you

      or at least how much that means to me

                                                            I would

If I could hand you the best possible tools

        to build a future of your own

              before you pass them on

                   to another person in need

                                                           I would

. . .

. . .

If I could do anything for you

                                                           I would

      but right now

         I hope it makes a difference

                 when I tell you

                         I will do whatever

                                                            I can

    1. It’s been, admittedly, kind of rough in the way the last two years have been kind of rough. But things will get better, and having so much to look forward to and people to connect with has made a huge difference–including my growing excitement over Creative Gems. ^_^


      And thank you so much for the support and encouragement, Andrea!
