Someone..... by Terri McPherson

As heard on the Good Stuff with Jim Thompson

 

 What if you were a someone

who needed a hug today

and what if you were a someone

who'd gone and lost their way?

 

 What if you were a someone

in need of a friendly face

and what if you were a someone

crumpled and out of place?

 

 What if you were a someone

on a rocky, uphill climb

and what if you were a someone

with no one to share your time?

 

 What if you were a someone

desperate for a kind word

and what if you were a someone

speaking out, but never heard?

 

 What if you were a someone

who's confidence had been shattered

and what if you were a someone

longing to know you mattered.

 

 What if you were a someone

feeling ugly, worthless and small

and what if you were a someone

with no where to turn at all?

 

 What if you were a someone

crying tears that wouldn't stop

and what if you were a someone

giving up and ready to drop?

 

 What if you were a someone

full of sorrow, pain and despair

and what if you were a someone

yearning for someone to care?

 

 

 

But...

 

 What if you're not that someone?

What if life's going your way?

Would you give yourself to someone else,

be the someone you'll need someday?
