Laina Owen

We live and learn in this old world
And as we older grow,
Still more and more we realize,
It's so little that we know.
There's one thing that we wish we knew,
It's where and when to speak
And how to say the things we feel
To help the poor and weak.

So many times we want to talk,
But don't know what to say,
To give someone the strength he needs
To help him on his way.
I God would grant one perfect gift,
To one so small and weak,
The thing I'd ask is just to know
When and where and how to speak.
