I wonder if a grain of sand blown fully away
—–should be missed by anyone upon break of day
I wonder if a blade of grass pulled from the ground
—–should be missed by anyone who later walks around
I wonder if a single leaf fallen from branch so high
—–should be missed by the birds passing as they fly
I wonder if a flowers petal plucked by child s hand
—–should be missed by garden in which its stem does stand.
I wonder if a persons heart broken by deep despair
—–should be missed by those who said they truly care.
