time enough to care

IF YOUR HANDS ARE FREE
WOULD THEY REACH FOR ME
STRETCHING PAST THE CROWD

IF YOU WOULD BUT SMILE
WOULD YOU SMILE AT ME
OFFER COMFORT IN THE NIGHT

IF YOUR EARS HEARD ME
AS THEY DID THE SEA
WOULD YOU VENTURE ON THE SHORE

IN A BUSY WORLD
WHERE ITS RUSH AND SPIN
AND WE HAVE NO TIME AT ALL

WOULD YOU PASS A FRIEND
OR A STRANGER LEND
YOUR TIME WHEN THEY CALL

LIKE A CHANCE MEETING
ON A PLATFORM THERE
IN BETWEEN THE TRAINS

SHARE A THOUGHT OR CARE
TO SOMEBODY THERE
BEFORE WE PART SOMEWHERE

TO TOUCH A LIFE
TO HELP SOMEONE
IS PART OF WHO WE ARE

good point goodguy, not always easy seperating self interest from helping others, but we aim to try..thanks for the thought.
