All You Had To Say. . .
Today it felt like the first shower of spring,
Or the first rose was in bloom,
Or that birds had begun to sing.
Today it felt like no one else would die,
Like no mothers would abandon their children any longer,
And that no one else would even think about beginning to cry.
Today it felt like no one else would make the rules bend,
that everything in the world was perfect,
and all the evil in the world would end.
And all you had to say was "Sarah, I love you."
