I’d Like To Be A Friend © Annette Gray
If I could make a difference in this life as I pass through,
It would be with acts of kindness to help a friend or two.
I’d like to be a person, both compassionate and kind,
So when someone needs a helping hand my name would spring to mind.
I’d like to be remembered as a person who said, “thanks”
For the kindly deeds of others or those harmless little pranks
That bring sunshine to a cloudy day. And I’d like to play a part
In spreading cheer to others who may have a heavy heart.
If I could make a difference, what a difference it would be;
There would be no wars nor sorrow, illness or poverty.
But since I have no power to change a whole world’s pain and strife,
Then I pray I’ll make a difference to each person in my life.
Yes, if I can make a difference as I journey down life’s street,
Then I’d like to make a difference to each person that I meet.
May each smile I give to someone else travel quickly on its way,
Be relayed to many others . . . and make a difference to their day.
