If I can

                If I can,
                sing a lullaby to a crying baby, lonely in a dark cold night,
    		Until cozily doze off in my rocking lap.

  		If I can,
                Hold firmly a falling down soul in despair,
   		And give the courage to stand up again.

  		If I can,
                Wipe a tear from a teen whose youth was stolen    
  		And give her the wisdom to fight the cruel shame away.
                
                This worthless life means something to me
