A Handful of Seeds
January, 1994 (LJA)
I bring with me a handful of seeds I can look out and see what you don't want to be
And can help you make a new start
What will I do with them
If I look out and see somebody like me
It's all I have--this handful of seeds--
Who cares just like me from the heart.
They're all I have to spend.
Will I share them with you if when I look at you
It only takes a handful of seeds
I see the person I don't think you should be
And wisdom how to use them
Or will I hold them close, protecting myself
Then you can help somebody in need
And just keep my seeds all to me?
You can be a friend.
I bring with me a handful of seeds
If you'll reach out and share your handful of seeds
What will I do with them
With someone with feelings like you
It's all I have--this handful of seeds--
You'll find your seeds will multiply
They're all I have to spend.
And others will share their seeds too.
When I look in your eyes and I see your despair
You bring with you a handful of seeds
Like a mirroring of my own soul
What will you do with them?
Then I'll stay here and work beside you
It's all you have--this handful of seeds
And together we'll find a new goal.
They're all you have to spend.
It only takes a handful of seeds
And wisdom how to use them
Then I can help somebody in need

I can be a friend.
