If

If stars could be held
and sunshine contained
If trials were no trouble
if parents came trained
If darkness revealed things
instead of concealing
if pain didn’t hurt
and we’d never need healing
If sin wasn’t ugly
if heartaches weren’t real
then life wouldn’t matter
and we wouldn’t feel
If doubt didn’t happen
and fear didn’t scare
we wouldn’t find God
-anywhere…
