Do You Believe?
“Do You Believe?”
Do you believe in waiting for someone
Who you know you’ll be with forever?
Do you compete to not be outdone
By the ones who always do better?
Do you have the perseverance to climb
Higher than the highest plains?
Can you lend an extra eye for the blind
Who accidentally boarded the wrong plane?
Can you stand up for the ones who are
Being harassed by those with fail
To realize that life enough is hard
And so we should gather together and prevail?
Can you see beyond the hills?
The trees? The forests? The sky?
Can you find a way to muster the will
To lie to me with honest eyes?
Can you tell me your deepest secrets?
The ones you won’t share with anyone else
Can you tell me all your regrets
Without losing the happiness you felt?
Do you stay awake at night and cry
Thinking of the people you miss?
Is there a way you can dry your eyes
So the images will cease to exist?
Do you believe true love is real
And it can be felt by the beating in our chests?
Can true love honestly heal
All of our woes until we take our final rest?
Do you lend a helping hand
To those who are less fortunate than you?
Can you go a day without demands
That others could not possibly do?
Do you believe we all have a spotlight
Where we can shine like the stars in skies?
Can our bulbs really burn bright
Enough to allow us to try?
Do you think about me
Or at least the person behind these rhymes?
Can you realize I am a human being
Who is running out of time?
Do you believe in the solutions
Or answers to these questions?
Is everything you see an illusion
Or a fabrication for this session?
