The Power of One

I came across this delightful poem in a magazine called, "Iskra: Voice of the Doukhobors." The author was not given, and my internet searching did not yield the name of the person who wrote it. I also found it with several different titles.

I loved the sentiment expressed in this sweet poem. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

The Power of One

One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.

One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true,
One life can make the difference,
You see it's up to you!
