If I Could Give You the World

My Child
If I could give you a world
Full of only love and beauty
I would

My son
If I could give you a world
Void of violence and greed
I would

My daughter
If I could give you a world
Where all races, sexes, and religions were equal
I would

My heir
If I could give you a world
Where there was no fear nor death
I would

But if I took away all these things
That may cause any trial in your life
I would do you a disservice

I take away the measure of your strength
I take away the reason for you to have faith
I can't do that to you my child

For although I would love to spare you
All the trials that you will face in your life
I must trust God to make you strong enough
To suffer and withstand your trials and become
The man or woman God placed you with me to be.

Come my child and I will help you grow
As we walk along this path of life together
Until one day you are strong enough to walk this path alone
Then God will bless you with a child to guide down this path.
I love you and God bless you my child!

Earth Hour

The hour is dark
as evening sets in
No light or power
for some homes within -

Just the radiant glow
of soft candlelight
Instead of emissions
we eat up each night.

We've turned off the lights
in favour of that
Which needs understanding
we can't take it back -

'Cause once it's devoured
the earth and the sky,
There'll be nothing left
and we'd be wondering why.

For over the years
the whole world has grown
With vast populations
in every timezone -

Technology advancing
over land and sea
With the use of computers,
phones and electricity.

Imagine the damage
inflicted by those
Who never took notice
and claimed "they didn't know" -

If everyone embraced
that same point of view,
Where would we be now
and just what would we do?

For our world is sacred
it is but a gift
We need to take care of,
not cause greater rifts -

And so while it is dark
we turn off the power
And conserve for a moment -
to honour Earth Hour.

Mother Earth

In a world of flowers and sunshine
What have we done to you Mother Earth?
We have treated you so badly
You, who gave us birth.

We have polluted and silted up your rivers
And made the ice floes melt,
Such pain and such great agony
All around us now is felt.

Carbon emissions and chemical spills,
Oil slicks on your water,
What heritage are we leaving
For every son and daughter?

There is so much I want to do
To restore you to your health,
To bring you back to a time
Of beauty and natural wealth.

I will try to do my little bit
In any way I can,
I shall try to teach these things
To my fellow man.

Iíll turn the lights off in my home
When they are no longer needed,
I will talk to my children
And hope that they have heeded.

Re-cycling will be my theme
In my world and in my home,
I shall work for cleaner oceans
And clear white seaside foam.

Protection of the animals
Entrusted to my care,
Will be the theme of my message
To people everywhere.

Hope will be my message,
And love will be my theme,
I want to work with all of you
To bring about my dream.
