If I Had the Words

If I had the words

I would use them

If I had the colors

I would paint them

For life passes you by

As you try

To make the best

Of what you have


It’s not always what you want

If there was a time

I would make it

For if I could be perfect

I would fake it

For when the moments

In time

Keep rolling by

We just have to try

And make it

If there is a light

I will shine it

In my insufficient


I will hold up a map

Of the path

That I go

Down the wire

And out the window

The sun shine

And brings in tomorrow
