Could You?

Could you describe the sky
to a person without sight,
the gift of shades and shadows
you receive each day and night?

Could you depict the freedom
of walking down the street
to a person who has never
had the use of their two feet?

Could you express the comfort
of sleeping in a bed
to someone who does not have
a place to lay their head?

Could you explain the pleasure
of a satisfying meal
to a child who has never known
the fullness that you feel?

Could you, in all honesty,
with good and truthful measure,
say that you are thankful
and consider life a treasure?

Could you?
