If I Could Write A Poem About Each Person I Have Known And Cared About
IF I COULD WRITE A POEM FOR EACH PERSON I HAVE KNOWN AND CARED ABOUT
by Shalom Freedman
If I could write a poem for each person I have known and cared about,
If I could say something of the goodness and pain of their lives,
If could write them as they truly were or are-
But who can write a whole life truly
And what could it mean to them
Or their eternal happiness?
Their lives were and are beyond my writing of them
And my words and my feelings
Are only my own.
God bless them all
Each one his own story and name.
